“This book from Md Aboul Fazal Younus focuses on climate change vulnerability and adaptation. The book is recommended for practitioners and researchers on climate change, with a particular focus on vulnerability and adaptation but it will also interest practitioners and policy-makers engaged in developing the plans and programmes at regional and national level.   The Lake Victoria Environmental Management Project, implemented by the Ministry of Water and Environment, has improved management of trans-boundary natural resources of Lake Victoria basin for shared benefits of East African Community through reduction of pollution and enhanced climate resilience in selected hotspot areas. The project is funded.

Additionally, assessing the vulnerability of species or habitats to climate change provides insight into which aspects of climate change may affect a species or community the most. Uncertainty of various types is an important factor to consider when implementing the results of a vulnerability assessment.   Wandiga SO, Opondo M, Olago D, Githeko A, Githui F, Marshall M, et al.

  The lake's immediate future looks grim: the blooms are worsening with climate change, and pose a threat to tourism and recreation. But research into the lake's gunky plight is . Climate sensitive water resource management is crucial to livelihoods in the two basins and therefore understanding their vulnerability to climate variability and change is crucial to the wellbeing of river basin communities [].These communities, especially in rural areas, are some of the poorest in the country with about one-third of the households considered multi-dimensionally poor (i.e.

LAKE VICTORIA BASIN COMMISSION Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan – LAKE VICTORIA BASIN!!!!!!. 32 32 36 00 00 00 Burundi Tanzania Kenya Uganda Rwanda.

Villages Country boundaries LVB Water bodies Vulnerability Lowest. Lake Victoria Basin extends into five countries, namely Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, and Rwanda.

In the Lake Victoria Basin (LVB), climate change is inadequately integrated into regional transboundary water catchment management which is increasing the vulnerability of LVB communities.

This problem is expected to intensify under the conditions of future climate change, specifically. climate change vulnerability assessment and adaptation. It introduces the readers to the concept of vulnerability to climate change, presents a general framework for assessing vulnerability and provides a rich selection of methods and tools to assess components of vulnerability at various levels.

Prepared by a Task Group on behalf of the World Health Organization, the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Cited by: The project seeks to reduce the vulnerability of the Lake Victoria Basin to climate change, focusing on two key issues; water scarcity and flooding.

The project will increase climate resilience in the LVB at both a regional and local level by implementing both regional and community-based climate change adaptation interventions.

Climate change research defines vulnerability as a function of exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity (Adger,IPCC,Smit and Pilifosova,Yohe and Tol, ). The term “exposure” addresses the incidence of climate change impacts—the degree to which actors are in the “firing line” of climate change impacts.

A third report investigating climate change vulnerability of fish species in the Lake Victoria basin was recently published (Sayer et al., ); however, those data were not incorporated as they became available after the present analyses were complete.

Further details on data collection are available in the Supplementary Methods S   Consistent with the current findings, a study on vulnerability assessment to climate change of the LVB inhabitants by the LVBC reported that most people in the Lake Victoria Basin had experienced climate change markers related to adverse changes in weather, while a study by Ndambiri et al.

reported that 94 % of farmers in Kyuso District, Kenya. Climate change adaptation (CCA) is a response to global warming (also known as "climate change"). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) defines adaptation as: 'the process of adjustment to actual or expected climate and its effects.

In human systems, adaptation seeks to moderate or avoid harm or exploit beneficial opportunities. In some natural systems, human. in adapting to the effects of climate change. This book outlines the impact of climate change in four developing country regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America and small island developing States; the vulnerability of these regions to future climate change; current adaptation plans, strategies and actions; and future adaptation options and needs.

Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Coastal Hazards and Sea-Level Rise Asset Vulnerability Assessment Protocol The National Park Service (NPS) has partnered with the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Western Carolina University to create a Coastal Hazards and Sea-Level Rise Asset Vulnerability Assessment Protocol.

I’m pleased to issue Part 1 of the Cambridge Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA) Report. This report is born from a recommendation by the Cambridge Climate Protection Action Committee and concerns expressed by the Cambridge community about the local implications of global climate change.

The paper assessed the effect of variability of climatic elements on Agulu lake, Anambra State, Nigeria. Data for the work were acquired from Landsat website () for 35 years.

Monthly records of the elements were collected from the synoptic meteorological station at Amawbia in Awka urban area. The penman model was used in the estimation of open water vapour from the lake.
