Climate Change: Vulnerability Assessment at a national level in Algeria (2016)

Funded by the German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation (GIZ) and on behalf of Algeria’s Ministry for Water Resources and Environment, this project assesses the risk and vulnerability to climate change of crucial sectors such as i.e. agriculture and health in Algeria. With the support of four national partners, the Z_GIS team will develop a spatial climate change risk assessment and related cartography for the national level.

The results support decision makers to take stock of current and future climate change impacts and to identify appropriate and tailored adaptation measures.

In addition, this project will serve as a pilot case study for applying the IPCC AR5 risk and vulnerability framework while following the recommendations and methods of the ‘The Vulnerability Sourcebook’, to which staff of Z_GIS contributed.
