Integrating climate change adaptation and mitigation into the watershed management approach in Eastern Africa

Discussion paper and good practices
21/03/2018

Climate change is predicted to have a marked effect on the agricultural sector in Eastern Africa. However, there is considerable potential to adapt to climate change. This can be done within the framework of the watershed management approach. There are compelling reasons for systematically integrating climate change adaptation and mitigation into the watershed management.

This discussion paper and good practices booklet for Eastern Africa was produced by the FAO and result from an expert workshop, held in Uganda in December 2015, on the identification and review of emerging good practices, lessons learned and policy opportunities around integrating climate change adaptation and mitigation into the watershed management approach. 

The publication explains what is meant by integrating climate change adaptation and mitigation into the watershed management; describes the benefits; gives examples; and ultimately serves as a guide and advocacy tool for a greater focus on systematically integrating climate change adaptation and mitigation into watershed management, for environmental as well as social and economic benefits.
