Possible futures for East Africa under a changing climate

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Check out two new Climate Risk Narrative (CRN) infographics we helped co-produced with climate scientists from the UK Met Office. These CRNs offer a rural narrative and help to facilitate discussions around the future impacts of climate change:

These stories describe three possible futures for rural East Africa in 2050. How the climate will change in the coming decades is uncertain, so three different plausible futures are included to demonstrate this range. These futures do not cover every possible outcome projected by climate models.

The stories also describe some of the resulting impacts that could be experienced in rural areas. However, these impacts will vary across the region due to a range of local factors. For a more comprehensive picture of projected climate changes, please see the technical appendix available on the FCFA HyCRISTAL project website
