Periurban water security in a context of urbanization and climate change: a review of concepts and relationshipsWater Security in Peri-Urban South Asia, 2010In peri-urban contexts, water security is shaped by the twin processes of climate change and urbanization. These processes act as multiple stressors and create an uncertain water supply for peri-urban residents.OrganisationWater Security in Peri-Urban South Asia is a three year project that works across four locations in South Asia.DocumentWater Security in Peri-Urban South Asia, 2013The relationship between urbanisation, water insecurity, and climate change is becoming evident as cities are expanding in the global south. The first key challenge is to establish the links between these three themes.DocumentWater Security in Peri-Urban South Asia, 2013As geographical areas subjected to rapid urbanisation and constantly changing land use, peri-urban sites offer women and men greater economic opportunities.At the sametime,peri-urbanresidents areDocumentWater Security in Peri-Urban South Asia, 2013Urbanization leads to the deterioration of peri-urban biophysical environments. Urban sprawl encroaches and degrades peri-urban ecosystems,and alters the natural equilibrium. This in turn, depletes the resource base of peri-urban areas.DocumentWateraid, 2016Climate variability and weather extremes, such as droughts, floods and cyclones, already pose considerable risks to the delivery of sustainable water and sanitation services. Climate change is likely to increase these risks, and introduce new water-related challenges as sea levels rise and glaciers melt. In short, climate change is water change.Document
Brief on fisheries, aquaculture and climate change in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC AR5)Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2016The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department has prepared this Brief on Fisheries, Aquaculture and Climate Change in the AR5 to provide an entry point to the vast AR5 content specifically for those interested in the fisheries and aquaculture sector and its dependent communities who are directly and indirectly affected by climate change and variability.DocumentResearchGate, 2015The coastal zone represents one of the most economically and ecologically important ecosys- tems on the planet, none more so than in southern Africa. This manuscript examines the potential impacts of climate change on the coastal fishes in southern Africa and provides some of the first information for the Southern Hemisphere, outside of Australasia.DocumentMalaria Journal, BioMed Central, 2015While there is growing recognition of the malaria impacts of large dams in sub-Saharan Africa, the cumulative malaria impact of reservoirs associated with current and future dam developments has not been quantified.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2016Coastal regions in low-lying countries are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change such as sea level rise, coastal inundation, erosion, cyclones and saline water intrusion.
