- The Nature Conservancy's Global Climate Program Director Sarene Marshall Comments on the Status of the Durban Climate Negotiations
- A study from March 21st by the Nature Conservancy estimates that 1 billion urban residents will face serious water shortages by 2050, in part caused by the effects of climate change. Among the most affected residents will be those in India, as well as those in the cities of Manila, Beijing, and Tehran. West Africa will face water shortages in cities such as Lagos in Nigeria and Cotonou in Benin. Water shortages will also pose risks for wildlife if cities pump in water from the outside. For instance, the India’s Western Ghats region is home to nearly 300 species of fish – 29% of which are unique to the area. The study recommends reforms in agriculture, which is typically the top consumer of water, as well as improved efficiency – because nearly half of the water in some poor countries is wasted though leaks. The authors of “Urban Growth, Climate Change, and Freshwater Availability” also highlight the need for international funding to address this challenge
