Linking Water Scarcity with Climate Change

Submitted by Sukaina Bharwani 9th October 2009 13:19

The main goal of the Yemen NCAP project was to mainstream priority adaptation activities that would build resilience against increasing water scarcity among vulnerable communities, sectors, and ecosystems in three representative areas. Within this overarching goal, there were four specific objectives for each case study area: 1) assess current and future vulnerability of water resources to climate change; 2) identify potential adaptation strategies within a stakeholder-driven process; 3) formulate a pilot adaptation measure; and 4) integrate the results into national policy discussions and legislative action.

The methodologies and tools used in this project were: participatory tools, multi-criteria analysis (MCA), Water Evaluation and Planning System (WEAP), modeling and poverty and social indicators.
