Netherlands Climate Assistance Project - Yemen Country Support

Water resources are critically vulnerable to climate change impacts in the arid nation of Yemen, and identifying adaptation strategies to meet these challenges will be key to developing sustainable livelihoods and addressing poverty in the country.

Three distinct geographic/socio-economic case study areas were selected for stakeholder consultation and analysis and integrated modeling of water resource vulnerability, potential adaptation strategies, and resilience.

For each of the case study areas, WEAP was used to develop scenarios that investigate the feasibility and impact of adaptation strategies that have been identified and prioritized by stakeholders via a multi-criteria analysis methodological tool developed by Bill Dougherty.
