Addressing water security: climate impacts and adaptation responses in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean

The Accomplishment Report provides an overview of the main achievements of the project “Addressing Water Security: Climate Impacts and Adaptation Responses in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean”, implemented from 2014 to 2020 by UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme (IHP) with the support from the Flanders Fund-in-Trust (FUST) for the support of UNESCO’s activities in the field of Science. Main outcomes of the project include the development of the Climate Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA) – a bottom-up methodology for assessing the impact of climate uncertainty and change on water resources and developing resilient and flexible adaptation pathways. Publications such as “The Midsummer Drought Atlas for Central America and the Caribbean” and “The Latin American and Caribbean Drought Atlas” were also launched to provide drought-related information and help facilitate an effective implementation of strategies and policies to tackle these events and other water scarcity problems.
