Climate change impacts have the potential to undermine and even undo progress made in reducing poverty to attain Millennium Development Goals, and improve the socio-economic wellbeing of the people, a water analyst has warned.

Dr Nicholas Azza, a water policy expert with the Nile Basin Initiative said despite clear and undeniable impacts and scientific predictions of more serious problems in the future, there is little movement in Africa towards managing risks and taking adaption measures.

We have increasing landslides, conflicts over water, land and other environmental resources but infrastructure for dealing with floods and droughts is inadequate,"Dr Azza said yesterday in Entebbe. He was speaking at the second international Nile Basin Research Programme conference organised by Makerere and Bergen universities.
