The current and future climate of central and southern Africa: What we have learnt and what it means for decision-making in Malawi and Tanzania
UMFULA has addressed questions of climate science, climate impacts and decision-making processes for adaptation, including: How does the climate of central and southern Africa work? And how well do climate models represent the key processes responsible for climate? How might the climate of central and southern Africa change in future decades out to ~2050 and how sure are we about the projected changes? To what extent can decision-making approaches incorporate climate change uncertainties within investment decisions that cut across the water, energy and food sectors? How does the political and institutional environment influence the usefulness and usability of climate information for adaptive decision-making?
