Dr Katharine Vincent is in Tunis this week, working with the water and sanitation directorate at the African Development Bank to mainstream climate change into their portfolio. This assignment involves screening the current Africa-wide portfolio of water and sanitation projects for climate risks, and developing guidelines which must be followed in the development of future projects to ensure that their intended results will not be undermined by projected climate change, nor that they will inadvertently increase vulnerability. Training in the use of the developed guidelines will be provided to the relevant water and sanitation task managers at the end of the assignment.
