Case Study Areas
Senegal River Basin, Delta system and Upper Basin, Senegal
The influence of climate variability and climate change on the sustainability of the water supply system. Conflict from multiple users. (energy, irrigation, water supply, navigation)
Water Supply Management
The installation of dams currently enables year-round availability of freshwater for irrigation, drinking water and to generate electricity.
Waste Water Management
Increased land degradation and the lack of effective waste water treatment results in a significant increase in prevalence of known and new water-borne diseases.
Key IWRM Objectives
Securing resilience in the functioning of specifically the upland (‘water tower’) components of the water system under predicted increased climate variability and change.
Pilot Area Focus
Upper basin scale, rural.
Key Research Objectives
- Determine the factors which influence the resilience of specially the water tower component of the water supply and water use system in the context of increased climate variability and change.
