      Climate change and variability pose a threat to wildlife resources in semi-arid savannahs. With examples from selected protected areas in Southern Africa, this chapter highlights studies on detected climate changes particularly rainfall and temperature, outlines the predicted and observed impacts of climate change and variability on wildlife resources in savannah ecosystems and highlights the Cited by: 2.

      Africa's water resources are home to around fish species representing over 60% of the global fish stocks (FAO (), UNEP ()). This has spurred a rapid growth of the fishing industry on the continent turning in a significant amount of money in foreign exchange and providing nutrition and employment to a huge number of locals within Cited by: Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub is a biome defined by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The biome is generally characterized by dry summers and rainy winters, although in some areas rainfall may be uniform. Summers are typically hot in low-lying inland locations but can be cool near colder seas. Winters are typically mild to cool in.

Adaptation to the impacts of climate change must start from now to build up the resilience of the affected countries and communities within.

It is this hydrolo gical cycle that determines the spatial and temporal distribution of water across the Southern African region. Map 1 shows the distribution of precipitation across Southern Africa. From this image it is clear that.
