Agricultural water storage in an era of climate change: assessing need and effectiveness in Africa


This report describes different agricultural water storage options and some of the possible implications of climate change. It also describes the development of a diagnostic tool, based on a set of biophysical and demographic indicators, which can be used to provide a rapid evaluation of the need and effectiveness of different water storage options, under existing and possible future climate conditions. In this study, the tool was applied to sub-Saharan Africa, specifically to the Volta Basin.
