Résumé
The northern Ethiopian regions are known for water scarcity and vulnerability to desertification, furthermore they are subjected to climate variability both in time and space. The Suluh river basin, located in northern Ethiopia, is characterized by semi-arid climate conditions, a high degradation and rainfall varying with the season. Due to an ongoing destruction of natural resources during the last decades together with climate variability, the availability and distribution of water resources in the basin is limited, resulting in food insecurity and a diminished socio-economic development. Therefore, this study focuses on the investigation of possible effects of land use/land cover dynamics and future climate changes on water resources in the Suluh river basin.
