Uganda: Current and Projected future climate
Source: Future Climate for Africa
Description: Stakeholders in climate-sensitive sectors in Uganda have varying levels of understanding about climate change and related issues. They therefore need climate information that is produced, packaged, and delivered in a way that meets their various needs, so that they can make decisions on appropriate responses to climate change. This is particularly important when it comes to plans, investments, policies and actions. This factsheet outlines:
The country’s ‘natural’ climate, and how this appears to be changing.
How the climate is anticipated to change, outlining the likely increases in temperature, but noting the uncertainty with regards to changes in future rainfall patterns.
The likely impacts for climate-sensitive sectors, including water, energy, agriculture, fisheries and health.
