      1 Groundwater abstraction and management in Sub-Saharan Africa Groundwater is abundant in Africa and the major source of drinking water (MacDonald et al. ), providing also an important buffer to climate variability (Altchenko and Villholth ). It is estimated that 30 percent of the urban poor in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) rely on groundwater. Available statistics for sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) show that non-availability of water, sanitation and hygiene continues to haunt our development efforts through avoidable deaths and diseases.

      from peer-reviewed journals and book chapters that (i) address water-related infectious diseases in SSA wetlands and (ii) link those diseases to use-related exposures. The resulting overview includes 27 publications and shows that depending on the type of use, people in wetlands . Wetlands are dynamic components of the landscape, responding to local and upstream rainfall, river flow and groundwater variability, and to water management. At the same time, in regions of strong.

      In Sub-Saharan Africa, Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Ethiopia have lead paint laws as of July The UN Environment Program has received approval for a multi-year Global Environment Facility (GEF) project on Lead Paint. The wetlands of Sub-Saharan Africa are home to six of the world’s 15 species of cranes, including resident Grey Crowned, Black Crowned, Wattled and Blue Cranes, and wintering Demoiselle and Eurasian Cranes. These iconic cranes face many threats, fueled by growing demands for land, water, energy and other natural resources throughout Africa.

Organization (s): Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the world's poorest regions and many people live by exploiting the natural resources of its rich wetlands.

This book explores the relationships between hydrological an ecological functioning of these wetlands and documents the implications for resource availability, health and social welfare of water management, through the construction and operation Cited by: Get this from a library.

A collection of articles on hydrological management of wetlands in sub-Saharan Africa is presented. Subjects dealt with include: (1) the economics and hydrological management of African flood plains; (2) health aspects of Sahelian flood plain development; (3) hydrological controls of Sudd ecology in the Sudan; (4) water management and rural development in the Hadejia-Nguru wetlands, north.

Sustainable land and water management approaches in sub-Saharan Africa: farm-level analysis of climate change mitigation and adaptation from sub-Saharan Africa. CABI Book Chapter. Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa is constrained by highly variable rainfall, frequent drought and low water productivity.

There is an urgent need, heightened by climate change, for appropriate technologies to address this problem through managing and increasing the quantity of water on farmers’ fields – water harvesting. Worldwide the pressure on water is increasing. In parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), natural wetlands constitute the only accessible water resources, providing water free of charge, agricultural.

This paper provides an overview of wetland distribution, type and condition across Sub-Saharan Africa. Findings from an investigation of wetland use conducted in Tanzania are presented.

These highlight the reliance of communities on both wetland agriculture and natural resources, and show that the nature of household dependence varies significantly from place to place and as socio-economic status. Sub-Saharan Africa is the epicentre of this challenge. The region's population is set to more than double by to almost billion, or 25% of the world's projected population 2.

Challenges to Community Based Wetland Management Lessons Learnt explosion, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, coupled with unsustainable exploitation, have led to a on wetlands and water catchment areas, which will have contra effects on the ability of the Nyando.

The article suggests that where multiple wetland uses exist, a range of benefits can be sustained with little evidence of environmental degradation. Ways of promoting and empowering such sustainable wetland management systems are discussed in the context of the wider need for water security throughout the region.

In many regions of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), natural wetlands often constitute the only accessible water sources, providing water and food in otherwise uninhabitable landscapes (Finlayson et al. This is especially the case in sub-Saharan Africa, a region on which this text is mainly focused.

The crisis appears to be more a crisis of governance than of resources, and societies are facing a number of social, economic and political challenges on how to govern water more effectively.

Synopsis In this book the authors argue for a paradigm shift in the way African wetlands are considered. Current policies and wetland management are too frequently underpinned by a perspective that views agriculture simply as a threat and disregards its.

Here we assess the influence of wetlands on rainfall across sub‐Saharan Africa (SSA). Using a well‐established multi‐satellite based product of wetland extent with monthly temporal resolution, we find significant wetland coverage (>10%) occurs at. 1 Introduction.

This has traditionally made wetlands difficult to map, measure, and manage. Scientists at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), WLE's lead center, have contributed to a comprehensive map of the world's wetlands, through a project led by McGill University.
