Landscape scale disaster risk reduction: Water trade-offs to reduce drought in the Tana Delta

Source(s):  Wetlands International

The publication describes an extensive cost benefit study of the entire Tana River Basin in Kenya undertaken by Wetlands international to support the recommendation to invest in water saving measures and in less water-dependent economic development. The Tana Delta is at the far downstream end of the Tana River Basin. Seven million people live in the river basin with mostly agricultural livelihoods. Expansion of hydropower infrastructure, an oil refinery, and additional irrigation schemes put the river’s health and services under threat. Over-abstraction of water in the Basin could lead to limited water flows downstream.
