Increased demand to feed rapidly growing urban populations in combination with climate change effects are forecasted to reduce Tunisia’s water supply by 28 percent by 2030. Furthermore, sea level rise may lead to increased water scarcity and reduced water quality. The possibility of saline intrusion into coastal aquifers, makes Tunisia particularly vulnerable to a decrease in the quality of water available in coastal areas. Overall, increased temperature, sea level rise, and decreased precipitation will exacerbate existing water resources challenges.
This section allows you to gain insights into climate change impacts on hydrological statistics based on climate future scenarios.
