Freshwater Under Threat: Vulnerability Assessment of Freshwater Resources to Environmental Change - Africa

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) ; Water Research Commission (WRC); (2008)

This publication documents the findings of the “Vulnerability of Water Resources to Environmental Change in Africa” study and clearly illustrate that Africa’s water resources are already facing serious risks, with the situation expected to get worse. It thus marks a starting point for undertaking comprehensive vulnerability assessments of Africa’s water resources, informing the management of vulnerability risks at various levels while accomplishing a wider continental, coverage of river/lake/groundwater basins and expanding the network of researchers.
