Susceptibility of Water Resources and Hydropower Production to Climate Change in the Tropics: The Case of Lake Malawi and Shire River Basins, SE Africa
The sensitivity of key hydrologic variables and hydropower generation to climate change in the Lake Malawi and Shire River basins is assessed. The study adapts the mesoscale Hydrological Model (mHM)
Stress-testing development pathways under a changing climate: water-energy-food security in the lake Malawi-Shire river system
Malawi depends on Lake Malawi outflows into the Shire River for its water, energy and food (WEF) security. We explore future WEF security risks under the combined impacts of climate change and
Sensitivity of projected climate impacts to climate model weighting: multi-sector analysis in eastern Africa
Uncertainty in long-term projections of future climate can be substantial and presents a major challenge to climate change adaptation planning. This is especially so for projections of future
Water level change of lakes and sinkholes in Central Turkey under anthropogenic effects
Determining water level changes in lakes is significant for sustainable water supply planning, flood control, water resource management, and economic development with ecosystem sustainability. Trend
Climate change and the hydropower sector: A global review
Renewable sources of electricity, such as solar and wind, need to be paired with sources of reliable baseload. Hydropower is a renewable, low‐emission source of electricity baseload available
Evaluating Climate-Smart Agriculture as Route to Building Climate Resilience in African Food Systems
Efforts to meet the growing demand for food across Africa have led to unsustainable land management practices that weaken the resilience of African Food Systems. Soil health is key to building more
Lake Malawi National Park 2020 Conservation Outlook Assessment SITE INFORMATION Country : Malawi Inscribed in : 1984 Criteria
  • Environmental Science
  • 2020
Since its inception in 1984, Lake Malawi National Park has largely retained its four outstanding universal values. With regard to aesthetics, it remains a region of outstanding natural beauty.


Water Balance Model of Lake Malawi and its Sensitivity to Climate Change
Sustainable water resources development of Malawi needs a thorough assessment of the impact of climate change on the future water levels of Lake Malawi because Lake Malawi together with its
Modelling the water balance of Lake Victoria (East Africa) – Part 2: Future projections
Abstract. Lake Victoria, the second largest freshwater lake in the world, is one of the major sources of the Nile river. The outlet to the Nile is controlled by two hydropower dams of which the
Water Resource Planning Under Future Climate and Socioeconomic Uncertainty in the Cauvery River Basin in Karnataka, India
It is demonstrated that the fine balance between water availability and demand is vulnerable to future changes and uncertainty, and early focus on agricultural demand management improves the robustness of pathways but trade‐offs emerge between intrabasin and basin‐wide water availability.
Integrated Assessment of no-Regret Climate Change Adaptation Options for Reservoir Catchment and Command Areas
The need for credible, salient and legitimate climate change adaptation options in the water sector, which target location specific adaptation requirements, is well recognized. In developing
Abnormal high water levels of Lake Malawi? — An attempt to assess the future behaviour of the lake water levels
Regional planning purposes in Malawi required the examination of the components governing Lake Malawi's water levels. Four methods were employed: water balance methods, time series analysis,
Enhancing the climate resilience of Africa's infrastructure : the power and water sectors
Africa has experienced economic growth of more than 5 percent per annum during the past decade, but to sustain this growth, investment in infrastructure is fundamental. Much of these investments will
