Module 3: The politics and policies of water and climate change in Africa Page Learning objectives [Text]

In this module we will focus on how climate change implications for water are entangled in existing social, environmental and political issues, such as vulnerability or equity: this is what we call "the politics of climate change". We will also explore how other development policies are linked to climate change adaptation policies.


At the end of the module you will be able to: 

  • illustrate how climate change implications for water are entangled with social and political issues;

  • analyse climate change adaptation policies.
