Building Climate Resilience in the Limpopo Basin in Mozambique

Several recent studies have examined the impact that anthropogenic climate change is likely to have on the river basin when it overlays on a region already beset by climate variability challenges. What emerges clearly from these investigations (including ones that integrate climate change modelling using Global Circulation Models or GCMs) is that climate change will make the impacts associated with climate variability more intense and more frequent in this region.1 In other words, while the evidence available thus far does not point to completely new and hitherto unknown phenomena taking place in the Limpopo basin in Mozambique over the period the strategy is designed for (through mid-century or 2050) due to climate change, climate change can be expected to markedly exacerbate the climate variability that the region already struggles with.
