Description:
UNDERSTANDING AND RESPONDING TO CLIMATE

The paper further describes the West Africa context in relation to the changing climate conditions it has been experiencing in the last decades. The third section analyses selected cases of disputes, tensions and conflicts around West Africa shared rivers. Cases analysed in the paper include: the middle valley of the Senegal River (between Senegal and Mauritania), the downstream half of the Niger River (between Nigeria and Niger), the Volta River (between Ghana and Burkina Faso), the southern part of the Lake Chad (between Cameroon and Nigeria).
The paper then analyses the common features of these cases. Finally, it suggests mechanisms for preventing and managing the risks of climate-induced water conflicts. These suggestions are meant to make transboundary watercourses spaces for cooperation instead of fields of conflicts and tensions
