Assessment of the Current and Future Available Water Resources Under Different Climate Scenarios in the Lake Bunyonyi Catchment, Uganda

The Government of Uganda identified the Ruhezamyenda catchment as one of 15 hotspot catchments threatened by increasing population pressure, water scarcity, loss of wetlands, deforestation and soil erosion. A management plan for the catchment was developed in 2015 but it did not integrate climate change concerns. The objective of this study was to assess current and future potential water resources under different climate scenarios in the Lake Bunyonyi catchment given the lake’s important role in the hydrology of the entire catchment.
