  • Climate Governance in Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This report synthesizes climate change governance issues in Botswana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Case studies assessed vulnerabilities to climate change; climate change adaptation policies, plans and strategies, and their genesis and relation to the state of national knowledge on vulnerability; the institutional actors involved in climate change policy and responses; public awareness of climate change; and the role of state and non-state actors in international climate change negotiations.

  • Southern african agriculture and climate change: A comprehensive analysis

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Southern African Agriculture and Climate Change: A Comprehensive Analysis examines the food security threats facing eight of the countries that make up southern Africa — Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe — and explores how climate change will increase the efforts needed to achieve sustainable food security throughout the region. Southern Africa’s population is expected to grow at least through mid-century. The region will also see income growth.

  • Disaster risk and climate change in Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Disaster risk and climate change – two of the greatest challenges currently facing humankind – adversely reinforce each other. In the coming decades, climate change is expected to increase the frequency and intensity of natural disasters such as droughts and floods.
    Climate change is also likely to increase people’s vulnerability to already existing hazards in developing countries. This is largely due to:

  • A Regional Coupled Surface Water/Groundwater Model of the Okavango Delta, Botswana

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    According to this study, water abstraction and reservoir building in the upstream countries are expected to reduce and/or redistribute the available flows for the Okavango Delta ecosystem. To study the impacts of upstream and local interventions, a large-scale (1-km2 grid), coupled surface water/groundwater model was developed. Scenarios were designed to study major upstream and local interventions and their expected impacts in the Delta. The scenarios" results can help decision makers strike a balance between environmental and human water demands in the basin.

  • Where energy is women's business: national and regional reports from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    In the introduction to this publication, ENERGIA policy advisor and editor of this pubication Gail Karlsson writes, “In many developing countries, especially in the poorest areas, most energy currently comes from traditional biomass fuels such as wood, charcoal and agricultural wastes - and collection and managing these fuels is strictly ‘women’s business’.” She calls on national energy and development policy-makers to acknowledge the links between women’s work, national economics and energy; as well as make more gender-focused investments and initiatives, with greater and more diverse invo

  • Water governance in Botswana

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Botswana is water scarce, with endemic drought and varied rainfall. In order to meet increases in water demand efficiently and sustainably, greater policy coherence and implementation is needed. The government acknowledges the principles of integrated water resources management (IWRM), but this is largely rhetorical. Water management is still centralised and stakeholder participation is often non-existent.

  • Climate Change Implications for Water Resources in the Limpopo River Basin

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This paper analyses the effects of climate change on hydrology and water resources in the Limpopo River Basin of Southern Africa, using a semi-distributed hydrological model and the Water Simulation Module of the International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade. The analysis focuses on the effects of climate change on hydrology and irrigation in parts of the four riparian countries in the basin: Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

  • Ali-Douglas Research Network

    Country of registration:
    Zimbabwe
    Relation to CTCN:
    Network Member

    Ali-Douglas Research Network is a non-profit, social science research network that aims at promoting information creation and sharing amongst Southern African institutions. The vision of the network is to be a leader in knowledge creation for social transformation. The network provides platform for researchers to interact and share ideas thereby building on social capital. This platform allows for unified efforts in the creation and dissemination of quality information for the benefit of society.
