Integrated water solutions for climate change adaptation in West Africa

In recent decades, water shortages in sub-Saharan Africa have become more intense and less predictable. Climate change is expected to aggravate the situation further by affecting temperatures, rainfall patterns, and the frequency and intensity of storms. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) (Niang et al. 2014), West Africa will be particularly hard hit. Largely dependent on rain-fed agriculture and already vulnerable to floods and droughts, the region faces declining crop yields by as early as 2050 if the projected global temperature increases are realized.
