Human interference with the climate system is occurring. [WGI AR5 2.2, 6.3, 10.3-6, 10.9] Climate change poses risks for human and natural systems (Figure TS.1). The assessment of impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability in the Working Group II contribution to the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (WGII AR5) evaluates how patterns of risks and potential benefits are shifting due to climate change and how risks can be reduced through mitigation and adaptation. It recognizes that risks of climate change will vary across regions and populations, through space and time, dependent on myriad factors including the extent of mitigation and adaptation. [INSERT FIGURE TS.1 HERE Figure TS.1: Climate-related hazards, exposure, and vulnerability interact to produce risk. Changes in both the climate system (left) and development processes including adaptation and mitigation (right) are drivers of hazards, exposure, and vulnerability. [19.2, Figure 19-1]] Section A of this summary characterizes observed impacts, vulnerability and exposure, and responses to date. Section B examines the range of future risks and potential benefits across sectors and regions, highlighting where choices matter for reducing risks through mitigation and adaptation. Section C considers principles for effective adaptation and the broader interactions among adaptation, mitigation, and sustainable development. Box TS.1 introduces the context of the WGII AR5, and Box TS.2 defines central concepts. To accurately convey the degree of certainty in key findings, the report relies on the consistent use of calibrated uncertainty language, introduced in Box TS.3.

This study examined the RWH using the run tests, Ljung-Box statistics, and the unit root tests. The data covered the period starting January 1994 to June 2007 for the daily closing prices of the Ksh/UD dollar spot rate. The main finding of this study is that the RWH is strongly rejected at the 5% significance level. The results indicate that the rejections are due to autocorrelation in currency returns. The exchange rate tends to appreciate most of the time over the sample period. Therefore failure of the EMH could be due to exchange rate undershooting and overshooting phenomena. The unit root tests showed that the exchange rate data is non-stationary while returns are stationary. Therefore the evidence strongly suggested that the foreign exchange market is not efficient.

As agroforestry technologies are developed and promoted, there is a need to integrate indigenous knowledge about pest identification and management techniques into the scaling-up process in order to improve farmers’ pest management practices. This paper documents farmers’ knowledge, perceptions and management practices against termites in agroforestry in Tororo District, Uganda. The applicability and implications of such information in the development and promotion of sustainable termite management in agroforestry are discussed.

Winam Gulf is a large (surface area ~ 1400 km2) and shallow (<20 m) bay of northeastern Lake Victoria with only one connection to the open lake through Rusinga Channel. To understand the exchange dynamics between Winam Gulf and the offshore waters of Lake Victoria and the hydrodynamics of the region, field studies were carried out from Apr. 22-May 4 and Aug. 5-16 of 2005. A meteorological station (shortwave, total radiation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction), thermistor chain (0.75 m vertical resolution) and ADCP (40cm vertical resolution) were deployed in Rusinga Channel in a depth of 20 m. Similarly, at an offshore station in northeastern Lake Victoria another thermistor chain was deployed in a water depth of 40 m along with wind speed and direction sensors.

Over both field campaigns the exchange dynamics through Rusinga Channel behaved similar to a tidally- driven system with surface level fluctuations of between 5-15 cm at the ADCP location, and much larger excursions at the eastern end of Winam Gulf. In general, these surface level movements led to barotropically driven flows into the Gulf during rising surface levels and currents towards the open lake during falling lake level. The frequency of these currents was found to vary between 6 and 12 hours and current speeds ranged from 10-50 cm s-1. Field data and ELCOM simulations indicate that despite the high current velocities in the channel the net exchange is low due to the oscillatory nature of the forcing. This implies that the Gulf is relatively decoupled from the main lake.

Ogallo LA. Predicting drought in Kenya: prospects and challenges.; 2000. AbstractPredicting drought in Kenya: prospects and challenges

The following aspects of drought prediction in Kenya are reviewed: (1) dynamics and causes; (2) socio-economic impacts, including the recent integrated global efforts to address such problems; (3) prospects for improved predictability; and (4) challenges to drought prediction in Kenya. The main systems that control rainfall variability in Kenya are: the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ); east African monsoon winds; cyclones and anticyclones; jetstreams; extratropical weather systems; thermally induced mesoscale systems; and teleconnections with El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), quasi-biennial oscillation, and intraseasonal wave. The vulnerability of Kenya to interannual rainfall variability highlights the need for timely and effective drought monitoring, diagnosis, long-range prediction, and early warning. The devastating impacts of drought, together with post-disaster relief and rehabilitation efforts, are illustrated, using the 1996-1997 drought, one of the worst in recent years. Predicting droughts in Kenya is difficult because of problems associated with: data availability; real-time monitoring systems; efficient communication; research, training, and equipment; mismanagement and abuse of drought information; financial resources; and, timely availability of drought products and services from global climate centres

Sihanya B, Juma C. Policy options for scientific and technological capacity-building.; 1993. AbstractWebsite

The ability of policies on biodiversity prospecting to contribute over the long term to economic development, conservation and the equitable sharing of genetic resources is examined. Consideration is given to: national innovation policy and biodiversity, the linkage of biotechnology to biodiversity, biotechnology transfer, technology assessment, and blind alleys and windows of opportunity. The discussion underlines that biodiversity prospecting will not contribute much to developing countries unless it helps them accumulate technological capacity through training programmes and technology development through scientific innovation. In order that national biotechnology policies enhance biodiversity prospecting much attention needs to be paid to human resource development, technological innovation, legal and institutional reforms, biotechnology regulation and intellectual property management. The experiences of INBio (Costa Rica's National Biodiversity Institute), a pilot technology transfer project, are discussed

Okoola REA. Principal component analysis of sea-level pressure over the southwest Indian ocean during the northern summer of 1979.; 1984. AbstractPrincipal component analysis of sea-level pressure over the southwest Indian ocean during the northern summer of 1979

Sea-level pressure over the southwest Indian Ocean has been studied for the northern summer season during the first Garp global experiment (FGGE) period. Grid point pressure values, resulting from objective analysis, at 1200 GMT for the period 15 June to 13 August 1979 were selected for this study. This period is referred to as the selected monsoon period and it lay between the Indian subcontinent monsoon onset and withdrawal periods. The space and time characteristics of sea level pressure in the region were estimated from principal component analysis and from spectral analysis respectively.

Kiboi JG, Kitunguu PK, Angwenyi P, Mbuthia F, Sagina LS. "Predictors of functional recovery in African patients with traumatic intracranial hematomas."; 2011. Abstract

Head injury is a critical public health problem responsible for up to 50% of fatalities among trauma patients and for a large component of continuing care among survivors. Intracranial hematomas are among the most common clinical entities encountered by any neurosurgical service and have a very high mortality rate and extremely poor prognosis among traumatic brain injuries. The purpose of this study was to investigate reliable factors influencing the functional outcome of the patients with traumatic intracranial hematomas (ICHs). A retrospective analysis was conducted of consecutive patients presenting at the Kenyatta National Hospital between January 2000 and December 2009. Following ethical approval, the records of patients admitted to the neurosurgical unit and diagnosed with traumatic ICH were retrieved and reviewed. The outcome measure was the Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) score at discharge. Data were collected in preformed questionnaires, and the coding and analysis were carried out using SPSS, version 11.5. Of the 608 patients diagnosed with intracranial hematomas during the study period, there was a clear male predominance, with 89.3% male and 10.7% female patients. Majority of the patients (49%) were aged between 26 and 45 years, whereas 5.6% and 9.4% were younger than age 13 years and older than age 61 years, respectively. The most common cause of injury was assault (48%). Good functional recovery was achieved by 280 (46.1%) of the patients in our series, whereas moderate and severe disability accounted for 27% and 6.9%, respectively. Males were more likely to have functional recovery (46.4%) than were females (43.1%), though this finding was not statistically significant (P = 0.069). The proportion of patients who achieved functional recovery seemed to decrease with increasing age. Patients who were involved in motor vehicle accidents were less likely to have functional recovery (33.7%, P = 0.003) than those who fell (53.6%). There was a statistically significant difference in the proportion of patients who achieved functional recovery, with 65.2% of those who had mild head injury as compared to 46% and 15.1% (P ≤ 0.001) for those with moderate and severe head injury, respectively. Patients who had surgical intervention were more likely to achieve functional outcome (51.2%) as compared to 31.7% in those managed conservatively. Furthermore, the time elapsed from initial trauma to surgery significantly influenced outcome. The type of surgery done was not found to significantly influence patient outcome (P = 0.095). An increased risk of poor outcome occurs in patients who are older than age 61 years, have lower preoperative GCS scores, pupillary abnormalities, and a long interval between trauma and decompression. The findings would help clinicians determine management criteria and improve survival.

me des déviations de la climatologie régionale déterminée par l'analyse desmesures à long terme, généralement surune période d'au moins 30 ans, ou aux conditions climatiques normalement vécues,
et un ensemble différent mais récurrent de conditions climatiques sur une région donnée du monde (IPCC, 1998). Le changement climatique peut également se référer à une altération du climat, survenue suite aux activités humaines (Wigley, 1999). Le changement climatique devrait se poursuivre au cours du 21ème siècle comme une conséquence de la tendance croissante des émissions de GES (IPCC, 2007a), stimulant trois principales réponses: les adaptations techniques et celles des moyens de subsistance par les communautés affectées, les mesures d'atténuation qui permettent de séquestrer les GES ou de réduire la dépendance aux combustibles fossiles, et le dialogue international formel sur la portée et la correction de cette menace émergente et désormais pressante pour l’humanité. Les scénarios de changement climatique pour l'Afrique comprennent des températures plus élevées sur tout le continent, estimées pour croître à un taux de 0,2°C par décennie (Elagib et Mansell, 2000) et des précipitations plus aléatoires avec une augmentation légère dans les éco-zones de l'Afrique orientale et éco-zones forestières humides de l'Afrique occidentale, puis des baisses durables de productivité dans le Sahel et dans les éco-zones du sud, du centre et du nord de l'Afrique (Stige et al., 2006). Cette projection est en partie renforcée par les changements dans les rythmes pluviométriques au cours des 60 dernières années, qui ont diminué de près de 30% (Sivakumar et al, 2005), avec les plus grands effets négatifs ressentis dans le Sahel et l’Afrique de l'Ouest (Nicholson et al, 2000; Hulme et al, 2001).

Obosi OJ. "Public Private Partnetships in the Privatization of Water Service Delivery in Kenya.". In: Current Issues of Water Management. Rijeka: Intech; 2011. Abstract

Key words: Public - Private Partnerships, Privatization, Water service delivery
The Government of Kenya has introduced several water reforms in the provision of
water services since independence in 1963. The Local Government Act Chapter 165
of the laws of Kenya granted local authorities powers to engage in water services
provision especially in urban areas (Republic of Kenya, 1986b). The Water Act of
2002 introduced far reaching reforms in the water sector in terms of management and
provision services. It commercialized the provision of water services by forming
Public Limited Companies (PLCs) owned by respective local authorities. It also
allowed private sector participation in the provision of services. Individual companies
and communities have also been permitted to seek license from Water Services
Regulatory Board (WSRB) to provide water services to the public. Among the
private sector actors are independent water service Providers in the form of
community water projects, Private bore-holes, Water tankers, and Water kiosks.
Community water projects request for funds for putting up water projects from a state
organ known as Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF), hence the Public –Private
Partnerships. The paper examines the effectiveness of the existing policy and
institutional framework for the management of privatized water service delivery.
The paper particularly examines institutional monitoring mechanisms in ensuring
clean quality water is supplied to the unsuspecting poor. Are there clear mechanisms
in which the public through the state institutions regulate the water service provision
by private actors, as a requirement, before water is released to the public? How can
the private sector be made accountable for offering public goods.
The study has drawn its data from secondary data of randomly selected ten (10)
independent water service providers registered under two of the eight (8) Water
Service Boards (WSBs) in Kenya, namely, Rift Valley Water Service Board
(RVVWSB), and Athi Water Service Board (AWSB). The data was drawn from the
existing secondary data and was analyzed through content Analysis.
The paper has utilized the World Bank framework for the provision of transaction
intensive services as its analytical framework where water is taken as a transactionintensive
service with ministry of Water Development and Irrigation being policy
maker. Provider organizations include Water Resource Management authority
(WRMA), Water Service Regulatory board (WSRB), and Water Service Boards
(WSBs) as water providers. Water Service Providers (WSPs) are agents of WSBs.
WSPs include PLCs registered by the respective local authorities, and independent
ones including Community Water projects, and Water Kiosks.
The paper is expected to among others, identify and explain some role overlaps
between WRMA and WSBs since both can set water tariffs and there are weak
institutional arrangements to monitor the effectiveness and efficiency in the
operations of the independent water service providers.
