URBAN RISK ASSESSMENTS-Understanding Disaster and Climate Risk in CitiesEric Dickson, Judy L. Baker, Daniel Hoornweg, and Asmita Tiwari2012


2012


Th e rapid and often unplanned expansion of cities is exposing more people and economic assets to the risk of disasters and the effects of climate change. For city governments, increased climate variability imposes additional challenges to effective urban management and the delivery of key services, while for residents it increasingly affects their lives and livelihoods due to more frequent floods, landslides, heat waves, droughts, and fi res. Th ere is an urgent need for cities to consider disaster and climate change by streamlining assessments of related risks in their planning and management as well as delivery of services. Th is paper proposes a framework for carrying out urban risk assessment, and seeks to strengthen coherence...

RAINFALL VARIABILITY IN SOUTHERN AFRICA, ITS INFLUENCES ON STREAMFLOW VARIATIONS AND ITS RELATIONSHIPS WITH CLIMATIC V AR1ATIONSPATRICK V ALIMBA2004


2004


Hydrological variability involving rainfall and streamflows in southern Africa have been often studied separately or have used cumulative rainfall and streamflow indices. The main objective of this study was to investigate spatio-temporal variations of rainfall, their influences on streamflows and their relationships with climatic variations with emphasis on indices that characterise the hydrological extremes, floods and droughts. It was found that 60-70% of the time when it rains, daily rainfalls are below their long-term averages and daily amounts below 10 mm are the most frequent in southern Africa. Spatially, climatologies of rainfall sub-divided the southern African subcontinent into the dry western/southwestern part and the “humid”...

Progress and Challenges in Urban Climate Adaptation Planning-Results of a Global SurveyJoAnn Carmin, Nikhil Nadkarni, and Christopher Rhie2012


2012


Cities around the world are increasingly aware of the need to prepare for greater variability in temperature, precipitation, and natural disasters expected to take place as a result of global climate change. In recent years, numerous reports and manuals have been written and networks formed to offer guidance and facilitate the exchange of ideas and information. However, since systematic studies have not been conducted, the information and methods being disseminated often are based on the efforts of a limited number of cities and wisdom drawn from experience in other domains. To gain insight into the status of adaptation planning globally, approaches cities around the world are taking, and challenges they are encountering, a survey was...

Integrated mapping of groundwater drought risk in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) regionKaren G. Villholth & Christian Tøttrup & Martin Stendel & Ashton Maherry2013


2012


Groundwater drought denotes the condition and hazard during a prolonged meteorological drought when groundwater resources decline and become unavailable or inaccessible for human use. Groundwater drought risk refers to the combined physical risk and human vulnerability associated with diminished groundwater availability and access during drought. An integrated management support tool, GRiMMS, is presented, for the mapping and assessment of relative groundwater drought risk in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. Based on composite mapping analysis of regionwide gridded relative indices of meteorological drought risk, hydrogeological drought proneness and human groundwater drought vulnerability, the mapping results...

Impact of monsoons, temperature, and CO2 on the rainfall and ecosystems of Mt. Kenya during the Common EraBronwen Konecky, James Russell, Yongsong Huanga, Mathias Vuille, Lily Cohen, F. Alayne Street-Perrott2014


2013


Glacial and early Holocene-age sediments from lakes on Mt. Kenya have documented strong responses of montane hydrology, ecosystems, and carbon cycling to past changes in temperature and atmospheric CO2 concentrations. However, little is known about climate and ecosystemvariations on Mt. Kenya during the Common Era (the past ~2000 years), despite mounting evidence for significant climate changes in the East African lowlands during the past millennium and recent observations of alpine glacier retreat in the East African highlands. We present a new, high-resolution record of the hydrogen and carbon isotopic composition of terrestrial plantwax compounds (δDwax, δ13Cwax) preserved in the sediments of Sacred Lake from 200C.E. to the end of the...

2013


A 350-year-long, well-dated d18O stalagmite record from the summer rainfall region in South Africa is positively correlated with regional air surface temperatures at interannual time scales. The coldest period documented in this record occurred between 1690 and 1740, slightly lagging the Maunder Minimum (1645– 1710). A temperature reconstruction, based on the correlation between regional surface temperatures and the stalagmite d18O variations, indicates that parts of this period could have been as much as 1.46C colder than today. Significant cycles of 22, 11 and 4.8 years demonstrate that the solar magnetic and the El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation cycle could be important drivers of multidecadal to interannual climate variability in this..

Urban fl ooding is a serious and growing development challenge. Against the backdrop of demographic growth, urbanization trends and climate changes, the causes of fl oods are shifting and their impacts are accelerating. This large and evolving challenge means that far more needs to be done by policy makers to better understand and more effectively manage existing and future risks.

In the context of the demographic, urbanization and climatic trends, policy-makers in East Asia are facing many difficult decisions over medium and long-term investments in public infrastructure and urban management. Recent tragic events in the region, including the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, widespread flooding in Thailand, and the tropical storm Washi in the Philippines remind us of the devastation, economic damage and loss of human life that result from disasters. They add a sense of urgency to the challenge of preparing for and managing disaster, and carry important lessons to urban disaster risk management practitioners. There are concrete ways to improve the decision-making process to guide cities towards the aspired...

Water desalination has become one of the sources of water supply in many countries, especially in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) where the renewable resources are limited. Water desalination can provide unlimited and constant supply of high-quality drinking water and reduces pressure on freshwater ecosystems and groundwater resources. However, as the capacity installed worldwide increases at a rapid pace, increasing concerns are also expressed over potential negative impacts of the desalination activity on the environment. The main concerns are the emission of air pollutants due to a fossil energy use and the waste water discharge to the sea: high salinity water, often containing residual antiscalants. The selection of the...

Assessing the positive and negative social impacts of protected areas is no easy task, but it can be done with relatively simple, low cost methodologies. Designed for this purpose, the Social Assessment of Protected Areas (SAPA) methodology can be applied to any protected area (PA), regardless of its management category and governance type, and to related conservation and development activities that are designed to support PA conservation. At the heart of the SAPA methodology is a multi-stakeholder process that enhances accuracy and credibility, and ensures that the assessment addresses the information needs not only of PA managers, but also of other key actors in government, civil society and the private sector.

Wetlands are among the most productive life supporting systems of the world with immense socio-economic, ecological and bio-aesthetic importance. From time immemorial, river valleys and wetlands have played a critical role in fostering culture and civilization. However, wetlands did not receive due consideration and appreciation. Consequently wetlands have diminished in size and quality at alarming rates throughout the developed and developing countries. Apparently, they are considered almost synonymous with wastelands, to be filled up, occupied and diverted for various human needs, disregarding the ecological services these ecosystems offer to humankind. Wetlands are lost / degraded due to anthropogenic activities such as agriculture...

Conserving large carnivores: dollars and fenceC. Packer et al.2013

Conservationists often advocate for landscape approaches to wildlife management while others argue for physical separation between protected species and human communities, but direct empirical comparisons of these alternatives are scarce. We relate African lion population densities and population trends to contrasting management practices across 42 sites in 11 countries. Lion populations in fenced reserves are significantly closer to their estimated carrying capacities than unfenced populations. Whereas fenced reserves can maintain lions at 80% of their potential densities on annual management budgets of $500 km!2, unfenced populations require budgets in excess of $2000 km!2 to attain half their potential densities. Lions in fenced...

Water is essential for all life on the planet, sustaining and ensuring the earth’s ecosystem. Groundwater from a global perspective provides about 50% of the potable water supplies, 40% of the industrial water and 20% of the irrigated agriculture. For drinking water, deep groundwater has many advantages compared to surface water and shallow groundwater, since it demands little or no treatment and the access is secured against temporary droughts. However, salinity in deep groundwater is common in coastal areas and in areas where rock salt is occurring naturally in the soil and bedrock...

The response of stable water isotopes in precipitation and the surface ocean to tropical climate variabilityJosephine Brown2004


2004


Stable water isotope records may be used to reconstruct tropical climate variability on seasonal to glacial time scales. Isotopic ratios in precipitation are archived in tropical ice cores, and may be interpreted as records of precipitation, temperature and atmospheric circulation variability in the tropics. Isotopic ratios in the carbonate skeletons of coral and foraminifera record local and mean ocean isotopic ratios as well as sea surface temperature. Reconstruction of past climate from isotopic records requires assumptions about the isotope–climate relationship on the relevant time scale. In order to test these assumptions, an isotopic tracer scheme in the Melbourne University General Circulation Model is used to simulate the isotope...

Multi-scale climate modelling over Southern Africa using a variable-resolution global modelFA Engelbrecht, WA Landman, CJ Engelbrecht, S Landman, MM Bopape, B Roux, JL McGregor and M Thatcher2011


2011


Evidence is provided of the successful application of a single atmospheric model code at time scales ranging from short-range weather forecasting through to projections of future climate change, and at spatial scales that vary from relatively low-resolution global simulations, to ultra-high resolution simulations at the micro-scale. The model used for these experiments is a variable-resolution global atmospheric model, the conformal-cubic atmospheric model (CCAM). It is shown that CCAM may be used to obtain plausible projections of future climate change, as well as skilful forecasts at the seasonal and short-range time scales, over the Southern African region. The model is additionally applied for extended simulations of present-day ...

AN ANALYSIS OF THE ENSO SIGNAL IN THE TROPICAL ATLANTIC AND WESTERN INDIAN OCEANSSHARON E. NICHOLSON1997


1995


This article examines the time–space evolution of the El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signal in the tropical Atlantic and western Indian Oceans, using harmonic analysis. Composites of sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) and other variables are examined for a 24-month period beginning 6 months prior to the year of maximum warming in the Pacific (termed year 0). An ENSO signal is apparent in the Atlantic in six out of eight Pacific episodes and in the Indian Ocean in all eight episodes. Warming begins along the south-eastern Atlantic coast early in year 0, some months later elsewhere in the Atlantic and in the Indian Ocean. Maximum warming occurs in the Atlantic in October–December of year 0, but in the following January–March...

Maximum flood depth characterizes above-ground biomass in African seasonally shallowly flooded grasslandsPaul Scholte12006


2006


Flood depth has been frequently used to explain the distribution of plant species in seasonally flooded grasslands, but its relation with vegetation production has remained ambiguous. The relationship between flooding and above-ground biomass at the end of the flooding season and during the dry season was studied to assess the impact of reflooding on the Logone floodplain, Cameroon. Above-ground biomass of a combination of all species and of the individual perennial grasses Oryza longistaminata and Echinochloa pyramidalis showed a positive linear relationship with maximum flood depth up to 1 m. The gradient of these relationships became steeper and their fit better during the 2 y following the installation of the flooding, showing...

The development of Zambezi drainage system is discussed within the framework of the post Gondwana tectonic evaluation of the southern Afrika. An internal drainage system, including the proto-upper Zambezi has been progressively captured during the Late Cainozoic by a more aggressive coastwise. Supporting geomorphic system evidence is presented from the east Kalahart rim. Drainage alignments and gradients, Zambezi and terrace sequence are discussed. Lacustrine features found in the present watershed between the middle Zambezi and internal system are described and explained as remmants of the former proto-upper Zambezi tributary system. Their interaction with linear dune activity is also examined. Despite the problems of dating drainage...

Assessing the Importance of Woodland Landscape Locations for Both Local Communities and Conservation in Gorongosa and Muanza Districts, Sofala Province, MozambiqueTimothy Lynam, Robert Cunliffe, and Isaac Mapaure2004


2004


In collaboration with two communities living in, and on the edge of, Gorongosa National Park (GNP), Mozambique, we researched the importance of different landscape units to these communities and used the information to develop a management plan for GNP. We conceived the importance of a landscape to local people as a ratio of the benefits they derive from it and the costs of accessing or using those benefits. To test this expectation, we developed Bayesian belief models, for which the parameters were the relative preference weightings derived from community members (the relative preferences for benefits and relative expectations of costs). We then collected field data to confront the models for each of the two sites. In a parallel process...

The Management Oriented Monitoring System (MOMS) was adapted from the Namibian project: Event Book System a community-based natural resource monitoring system from Namibia (Stuart-Hill et al., 2005). MOMS it is a guide for simple record of the level of use of the natural resources by stakeholder in a given area for management purposes. The fact that this system is simple it can be use by local community and most importantly, they can select what they want to monitor and it is not a research orientated. The entire system is paper-based, which seems to be the appropriate technology for remote rural areas and avoid the sustainability problems of ever-charging computer technology (Stuart-Hill et al., 2005).

AN OVERVIEW OF THE IMPACT OF MINING AND MINERAL PROCESSING OPERATIONS ON WATER RESOURCES AND WATER QUALITY IN THE ZAMBEZI, LIMPOPO AND OLIFANTS CATCHMENTS IN SOUTHERN AFRICAPeter Ashton, David Love, Harriet Mahachi and Paul Dirks2001


2001


The different types of typical chemical and physical impacts associated with diverse mining and mineral processing operations are described to provide an overview of the specific types of impacts that are normally associated with the mining or processing of specific minerals. In several cases, it was difficult to determine the specific impact exerted by a mining operation, because the impact(s) also depended on the degree of management control exerted during mining. Based on defined criteria, the impacts of mining and mineral processing operations were classified into high, medium and low impacts. These descriptors were then used to describe the scale and variety of impacts linked to mining activities in each of the sub-catchments...

AN OVERVIEW OF THE IMPACT OF MINING AND MINERAL PROCESSING OPERATIONS ON WATER RESOURCES AND WATER QUALITY IN THE ZAMBEZI, LIMPOPO AND OLIFANTS CATCHMENTS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
LONG-TERM PLAN FOR HYDROLOGICAL RESEARCH: ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT OF WATER RESOURCES AT GORONGOSA NATIONAL PARKRichard Beilfuss, Franziska Steinbruch and Richard Owen2007


2007


The future of Gorongosa NP depends on the sustainable management of its water resources. Hydrological research and monitoring is thus an essential component of the adaptive management system for Gorongosa NP. This plan aims to generate the data, knowledge, and capacity necessary to address the most important challenges to effective water resource management in the Gorongosa system, including: 􀂃 Maintenance of Lake Urema and associated floodplain wetlands; 􀂃 Deforestation in the catchment; 􀂃 Large dams on the Pungwe and Zambezi Rivers; 􀂃 Water withdrawals and diversions 􀂃 Mercury contamination associated with gold mining; 􀂃 Fertilizer and pesticide runoff from agricultural development schemes; 􀂃 Climate change.

LONG-TERM PLAN FOR HYDROLOGICAL RESEARCH: ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT OF WATER RESOURCES AT GORONGOSA NATIONAL PARK
Geology and geomorphology of the Urema Graben with emphasis on the evolution of Lake UremaFranziska Steinbruch2010


2008


The Lake Urema floodplain belongs to the Urema Catchment and is located in the downstream area of the Pungwe River basin in Central Mozambique. The floodplain is situated in the Urema Graben, which is the southern part of the East African Rift System. Little geological information exists about this area. The circulated information is not readily available, and is often controversial and incomplete. In this paper the state of knowledge about the geology and tectonic evolution of the Lake Urema wetland area and the Urema Catchment is compiled, reviewed and updated. This review is intended to be a starting point for approaching practical questions such as: How deep is the Urema Graben? What controls the hydrology of Lake Urema? Where are...

Geology and geomorphology of the Urema Graben with emphasis on the evolution of Lake Urema
Geomorphology, hydrology, and ecology of Lake Urema, central Mozambique, with focus on lake extent changesBeate Bo¨hme , Franziska Steinbruch, Richard Gloaguen, Hermann Heilmeier, Broder Merkel2006


1997-2000


Lake Urema is one of the most important ecological features of Gorongosa National Park, located in central Mozambique, in the East African Rift System. Understanding hydrology and ecology of the lake and its tributaries is particularly important for the conservationof the Park’s floodplain habitats and its biodiversity. There are concerns that hydrological boundary conditions and ecology of Lake Urema have changed in recent years. Possible causes for this change include climatic and land use changes as well as tectonic and geomorphological processes. In this study, a multi-temporal and multi-disciplinary approach was applied to investigate the dynamics and control mechanisms of Lake Urema. Principal methods comprised remote sensing...
