Adaptation to Climate Change in the Upper and Middle Niger River Basin

German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) and KfW Entwicklungsbank

 The Niger River Basin Snapshot: assessing the needs for adaptation to climate change and variability in a West African river basin. This basin snapshot aims at assessing historical trends and future projections in water availability in the context of climate change and variability in comparison with impacts on the water balance that are directly caused by human activities in the basin. It also assesses efforts by local communities to adapt to climate change and variability, as well as support by government and donors for adaptation. Finally, it assesses the scope for no regret measures and possible new measures for adaptation. This snapshot is part of a series of basin snapshots in developing countries carried out by KfW on behalf of the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)
