EDRI Research Report 19: Building A Resilient City to Water Mediated Climate Change: policy & Institutional Option

Abstract

Climate change poses risk to residents of cities by increasing the likelihood of their exposure to adverse effects such as flood and seasonal change in water availability. However, little is known about the impact of these adverse effects and their possible measures to adapt to the anticipated effects. The paper aims to fill the existing knowledge gap by identifying policy and institutional options to minimize the anticipated water mediated climate change impacts in non-coastal cities of Africa.
