This work involved the development of a water availability and water use model for the Nile Basin, integrating projections on climate change and water demand changes. The assessment was carried out under Work package WP1.1 “Comprehensive Assessments of Flood and Drought Prone Areas” by DHI and the UK Met Office in collaboration with the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). It was part of the UNEP project “Adapting to climate change induced water stress in the Nile River Basin”, funded by SIDA.
The overall project goal is to build the resilience of ecosystems and economies that are most vulnerable to climate change induced water stress in the Nile Basin countries through building key adaptive capacity and piloting adaptation in “hotspots” with technical, policy and financial interventions.
The UNEP-DHI Centre collaborated with Nile Basin Initiative (NBI), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency (SIDA) for the preparation and publication of the final report.
