Abstract:

This note provides a concise presentation of the state-of-the-art methods to assess climate change impacts on water systems with reference to the Nile basin. In particular, recent studies dealing with climate change in the Nile basin are summarized and guidelines for dealing with uncertainty in planning water resources in a changing climate are illustrated. The paper also includes potential strategy recommendations to policy and decision makers for planning adaptation measures in the water sector. In particular, the need to better recognize and characterize the uncertainty of climate change impacts on the hydrology of the Nile basin as well as the necessity to effectively support decision-makers and propose adaptation strategies and measures are discussed.
Key Words: Nile, Climate Change, Hydrology, Water Resources, Uncertainty, Decision Makers.
