Impacts of Climate Change on the Water Balance in East African Drylands

Project Details

Description

Climate change in East African dryland countries will have devastating consequences on already precarious water resources, yet it is not known how, where, and which water stores will be most affected, making human adaptation strategies hard to anticipate. We propose the development of a new modelling tool for forecasting dryland water balance in response to climate change. The project builds a partnership among scientists and regional and international agencies to address a critical development challenge.
