Adaptation to climate change in water, sanitation and hygiene: assessing risks, appraising options in Africa

Source(s):  Overseas Development Institute (ODI)

This report presents the findings of research into the risks to delivery of WASH results posed by climate change in Africa, drawing on rapid case study reviews of WASH programming in Malawi, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. The report identifies key risks at a programme level by looking at climate change alongside other pressures, and how to then identify and appraise adaptation options using cost-benefit analysis (CBA). It also illustrates how CBA can be used to compare costs and benefits under different assumptions around likely benefit streams from health and time saving gains, using a mix of primary and secondary data.
