Climate Change Impact Assessment in Agriculture and Water Sectors Study

The project entails collecting and collating necessary information (geological, hydro-meteorological and physiographic data) in order to analyse the impacts of climate change and variability consequences, e.g. changes in precipitation and temperature on water and agricultural sectors, including runoff, irrigation, flooding, water supply and groundwater recharge.

Actual services provided by our staff within the assignment:
Based on the developed detailed baseline database that includes historical climate data, topography, boundary maps, aquifers, land use/ land cover and soils for Yemen, scenarios are developed and climate change and variability impacts are assessed and mitigation options recommended. Stakeholder involvement for capacity building purposes is a major aspect of the study.
