Climate change is impacting the entire planet. It is impacting oceans, continents, and ecosystems. I recently completed a study on strategies for North East North Africa food securities, and the analysis clearly showed that the Nile basin is getting impacted.
In India, the Indo Gangetic plains that are the basin for the River Ganges river system are getting impacted. Much work has been done on the impact of climate change on the Amazon basin. The common feature in these cases is that global warming affects the ecosystem across these basins and the whole planet. The changes are gradual, and the pace of change varies yearly, as expected.
There is clear evidence that the Himalayan glaciers are steadily shrinking. It will impact river water flows in all systems dependent on glacial flows.
Rivers worldwide are sources for irrigation, recharging groundwater, provide drinking water to towns and cities. Climate change disturbs weather patterns. The frequency and intensity of extreme weather events will increase. These events can be in the form of excessive rainfall or long period of droughts. The impact of global warming leads to the depletion of the water sources of rivers, and the water requirements in the basin have to be augmented by groundwater. Such interventions can lead to the rapid depletion of this resource. A rapid drop in groundwater is witnessed in the Indo-Gangetic plains, threatening agriculture and the way of life in the region.
The NENA region is water and food deficit region. If global food imports are impacted further, we could be faced with the specter of people tapping into the non-renewable ancient Sahara water resource. It will be a scenario that could be described as armageddon.
