- DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Environment Programme, 2015The valuation of the benefits of action or, in other words, valuation of the costs of no action is necessary to justify suitable investments in wastewater management.DocumentEnergy Research Centre, 2014The dramatic potential impacts of climate change on hydropower potential in the Zambezi River Basin point to the need to explicitly consider climate change in both project planning and overall system expansion planning.DocumentOverseas Development Institute, 2015Decisions on water allocation and infrastructure lie at the heart of development planning in semi-arid lands. On paper, the laws and policies of Burkina Faso accord equal entitlement to drinking water for the residents of cities and the residents of small towns and villages.Document
Nutrient and sediment inputs of the Beausejour river: and the impacts it may have on the adjacent coral reef system in the Moliniere Beausejour Marine Protected AreaOrganization of the American States, 2013A major problem facing coral reefs in the Moliniere Beausejour Marine Protected Area (MBMPA) of Grenada is macroalgae overgrowth and their deleterious effects on corals. Reduced herbivory from overfishing and excess nutrients associated with pollution from land runoff have been implicated as factors causing significant increases in macroalgae cover on coral reefs.DocumentOrganisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, 2016Climate change is recognised as a factor that will increase the frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events, notably of droughts and floods to which the agriculture sector is especially exposed. Agricultural productivity growth and policy development have allowed the sector to better cope with these risks and reduce overall impacts.Document
The Himalayan climate and water atlas: impact of climate change on water resources in five of Asia's major river basinsGRID Arendal, 2015The first atlas of its kind, this new publication offers a comprehensive, regional understanding of the changing climate and its impact on water resources in five of the major river basins in the region: the Indus, Brahmaputra, Ganges, Salween and Mekong.Document
Evaluation of downscaling and bias correction techniques to link climate and geo-hydrological impacts modelsEuro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, 2015This document is the product P93c of GEMINA project that aimed to collect the main results from the application of bias-correction and weather generators techniques to climate simulations to estimate weather-related geo-hydrological impacts in the Mediterranean area.DocumentCaribbean Community Climate Change Centre, 2015Grenada, like other small island developing states in the Caribbean, has certain inherent characteristics that make it vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate variability and change. These include a limited reserve capacity to handle the effects of natural hazards as well as its location in the path of tropical cyclones of the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea.DocumentGlobal Environment Facility Environmental Information Infrastructure (EII) for Latin America and the Caribbean, 2007Aware of the need to manage water resources in Grenada in a sustainable manner, the Ministry of Agriculture took the initiative to develop a “roadmap”, policy and plan for IWRM at the national level.Document
The systems approach to urban water services in the context of integrated energy and water planning: A City of Cape Town case studyEnergy Research Centre, 2014The research examines the direct energy consumption for the provision of urban water services as influenced by external factors such as population growth, surface water runoff variability, available alternatives and the policies that are adopted which ultimately determine the future planning.
