The present study collects original monetary estimates for water related ecosystem service benefits on the African continent from 36 valuation studies. A database of 178 monetary estimates is constructed to conduct a meta-analysis that, for the first time, digs into what factors drive water related ecosystem service values in Africa
Africa is identified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as one of the region's most vulnerable to climate variability and climate change due to multiple stresses and low adaptive capacity. Impacts in Africa include increased water stress; reduced agricultural yields and areas suitable for crop agriculture; decreased freshwater fisheries; and impacts of sea level rise. Particularly vulnerable are semi-arid and arid areas of Africa.
