Abstract
A short overview is given of the strong population dynamics of West Africa, including urbanization and migration, the degree of water scarcity, and the effects of rainfall variability on hydropower generation. Climate-related diseases, like malaria and meningitis, as well as water-borne diseases like diarrhea, are also elaborated. Finally, the economic challenges imposed by climate, demographic growth, and globalization are outlined.
