Case study on river management: Lake Chad

Follow this link

As big as the Caspian Sea as recently as 8,500 years ago, Lake Chad is now Africa's fourth largest lake, with a maximum extent of 25,000km². One of three major wetlands located within the Sudano-Sahelian zone (the others being the Niger River Inner Delta in Mali, and the Sudd Swamps in Sudan), Lake Chad is rather shallow and has been particularly susceptible to the increasing variability and irregularity of rainfall during the last 40 years.

The present condition of the riverine ecosystems of the Colorado River system, including its National Parks, results from natural processes and from human water management systems. The future condition of these riverine ecosystems will likely be strongly affected by future climate change, but ecosystem condition will also be determined by how human society responds to the stresses of climate change through changes in water diversions and the operation of existing dams.
