Climate change is a serious threat to economic growth, livelihoods and the safety of countries and populations. The African continent is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change due to its still limited capacity for adaptation made more acute by conditions of poverty and instability. In order for governments, with the help of international institutions, to develop adequate adaptation plans, it is necessary to know and assess the impact of climate change on the hydrological cycle, in particular on the availability of water resources and on extreme events.
The aim of the research is to develop hydrological and hydraulic modeling tools able to quantify, in statistical terms, the impact of flood and drought events in the future climate.
