Enhancing the climate resilience of Africa's infrastructure: the power and water sectors

Africa has experienced economic growth of more than 5 percent per annum during the past decade, but to sustain this growth, investment in infrastructure is fundamental. Much of these investments will support the construction of long-lived infrastructure (for example, dams, power stations, and irrigation canals), which will be vulnerable to the potentially harsher climate of the future. Enhancing the climate resilience of Africa's infrastructure: the power and water sectors is the first book to use a consistent approach across river basins and power systems in Africa, including a comprehensive, broad set of state-of-the-art climate projections to evaluate the risks posed by climate change to planned investments in Africa’s water, and power sectors.

This book has been published as part of the Africa Development Forum Series sponsored by the Agence Française de Développement and the World Bank.
