Titre du projet : Impacts of Climate Change on Water Resources and Agriculture - and Adaptation Strategies in Tanzania (CLIVET)

Pays : Tanzanie

Durée  : October 1, 2009 - July 31, 2015

Project Type : Smaller projects : PhD

Description
The overall objective is to contribute to the knowledge and capabilities of Tanzania to encounter the impacts of climate change and to develop best strategies to adapt to these changes, particularly as they relate to water resources and the use of water within the agricultural sector. Research approach : The methodology of the project builds on integrated and interdisciplinary research on three axes : 1) climate change predictions, especially downscaling of results from global circulation models. 2) assessment of the impacts of these predictions, through integrated hydrological models, on the water resources in selected rural and important agricultural settings and areas. 3) identifying the actual, on-going and optional measures for adaptation in agriculture. Outputs, capacity building, and outreach : 1) Increased research capacity and competences. 2)Three Ph.D.’s and similar number of M.Sc.’s. 3) An international network of researchers 4) A set of state-of-the-art regional climate change predictions. 5) Hydrological models. 6) Socio-economic analysis. 7) Context-specific, evidence-based, and geographically focused recommendations on adaptation strategies. 8) Scientific and popular publications. 9) Stakeholder involvement.
