In this report, the findings of research conducted to determine the impact of one specific CC scenario (i.e., the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report Emissions Scenarios (SRES)-AR4 A1B (IPCC 2000)) on the performance of existing and planned dams, irrigation and hydropower schemes, are described. The A1B scenario was chosen because it lies between the extremes produced by other scenarios.

This report focuses on four countries in subSaharan Africa: Burkina Faso and Ghana in West Africa; and Ethiopia and Zambia in eastern and southeastern Africa. These countries were selected, first, because they are illustrative of diverse settings of sub Saharan Africa; this enables both context-specific observations and common insights that will be relevant for the continent to be drawn. Second, the four countries have witnessed significant investments (past or recent) in small reservoirs.

Through fair sharing of resources and benefits involved, it helps to prevent conflicts between uses and between States, and thus contributes to sustainable development in the areas considered.
