Access to freshwater is essential for our fundamental health and welfare. Water is also essential for sustaining agricultural productivity, and acts as a lubricant and coolant for many industrial processes. CTCN works to increase countries’ resilience to the impacts of climate change on water resources through partnering with organisations, research institutions and businesses. Together they provide established and innovative climate adaptation technologies such as water supply management using GIS, saline water purification and capacity building activities to strengthen vulnerability assessments in communities. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

    In Liberia, rainfed agriculture has always been the predominant system to secure food and livelihoods, especially for the production of rice, Liberia’s main staple food.

    Recent changes in climate and weather seasonality1, with new patterns exacerbated by either floods or droughts, are calling for innovative solutions to secure the livelihood of Liberian farming communities as well as increase production to respond to the heavy dependence on imported staples2, which makes the Liberian table vulnerable to global market price shocks.
