Title: Community Perception on Rain Water Harvesting in the Red Sea State (Arbaat and Sinkat Locality)
Author: Abdelgader, Nawara Abu Mohammed Mohammed Tahir
Abstract: The world is facing multiple challenges in the 21st century and those important challenges for humanity are poverty, food security, scarcity of water and, most importantly, new and complex challenges emerging due to global warming and climate change (IPCC, 2007). Sudan is particularly concerned with impacts of climate change. The majority of its land is quite sensitive to changes in temperature and precipitation and its fragile systems are quite vulnerable. Therefore food security is mainly determined by rainfall and consequently more than 70% of Sudan population is directly dependent on climate sensitive resources for their livelihood (SFNC, 2003). Water resource availability will be altered by changed rainfall patterns and increased rates of evaporation. Rainfed farming will become more precarious in the mid and low latitudes, while productivity may rise for a time in the higher latitudes (IPCC, 2007). Aquaculture and inland fisheries, which are important to many poor farmers, will likewise be affected by hydrological changes arising from climate change (World Bank, 2010).
