Book Description: The Volta River Basin (VRB) is an important transboundary basin in West Africa that covers approximatelysquare kilometres across six countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali and Togo. Its natural resources sustain the livelihoods of its population and contribute to economic development.

The large seasonal and interannual variability of the river flow increases those challenges. This paper assesses the implications of water resources development in the Eastern Nile basin on water availability for hydropower generation and irrigation demands at country and regional levels, using simulation and scenario analysis methods.

The Volta River is one of the major rivers in Africa. A transboundary basin, which is the principal water source for approximately 24 million people in six riparian states, it is likely to experience increasing stress in the near future as a consequence of both greater water demand and climate change.

Dr Williams, who gave an overview of the book, said the book was the result of a truly collaborative effort between researchers, senior policy advisors and administrators, who had spent many years working to improve water availability, use and management as a means of enhancing social, economic and environmental conditions in the Volta Basin.

Improved agricultural development upstream, in Burkina Faso, depends on the development of surface water resources; such water development programmes could have an impact on the availability of water downstream, in particular at the site of the Akosombo dam on which Ghana relies for almost all its energy supply.

Levels of water scarcity in Africa are predicted to reach dangerously high levels by It is estimated that about two-third of the world's population may suffer from fresh water shortage by Although, the earth is made up of 70 percent water, only 3 percent of this water is actually fresh water, which is suitable for consumption.

Water scarcity is the lack of fresh water resources to. The Volta delta is a relatively large coastal lowland located in the Keta basin, which is within the lower part of the Volta River basin.

The Volta River basin is a trans-national catchment shared by six riparian countries covering aboutkm 2. Today, the predominant use of the Volta Basin's water is agriculture, as is typical of most African basins.
