Water Sector Board Discussion Paper Series, Paper No. 15:

This report investigates the interactions between climate change and related water variability and the capacity of transboundary water resources management to cope with such problems. This aims at increasing our knowledge of exposure to climate change-induced water variability and of the respective resilience of river basin management mechanisms. This is a prerequisite for the design of future adaptation measures.

The results of the report reveal significant differences in both vulnerability to climate change-induced water variability and adaptation capacity across river basins, with some basins being fairly resilient to climate change, while others, especially in EAP and LCR, face severe challenges. Based on these insights, the World Bank will continue its contribution to the study of transboundary water resources management and climate change adaptation and work on improving resilience in these basins.
