Climate change adaptation

GOAL 5: CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION 

We prepare together for climate change impacts.

What does that mean? Climate change will make flood and drought periods in the basin more frequent and prolonged. We help communities and governments to better prepare for flood and drought events – by improving information flow and the resilience of infrastructure.



Action Areas

Climate Change Adaptation

The effects of climate change are being felt around the globe. The African continent, while contributing least to greenhouse gas emissions, is most vulnerable and yet is predicted to be hit hardest by the impacts of climate change.

Flood and Drought Risk Mitigation

Flooding is an annual problem in many countries in the Nile Basin including Sudan and Uganda.

Nile River Basin Investment Plan

The Nile region is well endowed with energy resources that include natural gas, oil, hydropower potential, geothermal energy, coal, peat, biomass, solar and wind. Despite the richness in energy sources, electricity supply in many Nile countries is inadequate, unreliable and expensive.

Nile River Basin Management Plan

The Nile Agenda is about what needs to be done to support the attainment of the Nile Vision Objective, agreed by the NBI member countries in 2002 to “achieve sustainable socio-economic development through equitable utilisation of, and benefit from, the common Nile Basin water resources.”

Strategic Water Resources Analysis

As the populations and economies of the Nile Basin countries grow, so does the demand for water, food and energy. If countries develop as planned and without coordination, this will put pressure on the already strained water resources of the region.
