Coping with international water conflict in Central Asia: implications of climate change and melting ice in the Syr Darya catchmentInternational Peace Research Institute, Oslo, 2010Climate models predict important changes in Central Asia's temperature and precipitation, which could exacerbate already existing tensions over scarce water resources. This paper tries to examine how projected climatic changes could affect water availability in the Syr Darya catchment, one of the two largest international river systems in Central Asia.DocumentInternational Peace Research Institute, Oslo, 2010This paper suggests that there are many development possibilities in Zambezi river basin (ZRB), considering the very low current level of consumptive water use there. The document finds that:Document
Integrated assessment of climate security hot spots in the Mediterranean region: potential water conflicts in the Nile river basinInternational Peace Research Institute, Oslo, 2010The aim of this assessment paper is to identify the key links between climate change and security, and their potential for inducing resource conflicts and societal instabilities in the Nile river basin.DocumentInternational Peace Research Institute, Oslo, 2010Vocal actors within policy and practice contend that environmental variability and shocks, such as drought and prolonged heat waves, are important drivers of violent conflict. This paper examines the scientific evidence base for this claimed relationship, investigating whether future wars will be fought over diminishing resources.DocumentInternational Peace Research Institute, Oslo, 2010This paper examines the relationship between rainfall, water, and socio-political unrest in Africa. In particular, the paper focus on how deviations from normal rainfall patterns, and extreme events, affect political behaviour and the propensity for individuals and groups to engage in disruptive activities, such as riots. The document suggests the following findings:DocumentArendal Maps & Graphics Library, UNEP/GRID, 2010This report examines wastewater challenges, aiming at achieving a better water management, particularly in developing countries (DCs). The report reviews how the production and treatment cycle can be better understood and managed so major environmental, societal, and economic dividends can be achieved.DocumentBergen Open Research Archive, 2009The overall aim of this report is to study why, how and to what extent water constitutes parts of people’s identity and core value systems in the Nile Basin societies and religions, in contextual and comparative contexts.DocumentArendal Maps & Graphics Library, UNEP/GRID, 2009While the reduction of emissions are currently at the center of climate change discussions, the critical role of the oceans and ocean ecosystems has been vastly overlooked.Document
Integrated Water Resources Management: STRIVER efforts to assess the current status and future possibilities in four river basinsDirectorate-General for Research - European Commission, 2009This paper summarises the main findings from the STRIVER project - an integrated inter-disciplinary assessment in four twinning river basins in Norway, Spain, Portugal, India, Viet Nam and Cambodia. The project focused on core elements and a variety of important issues relating to Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).
