The Congo-Project: Climate Change Scenarios for the Congo Basin

The project “Climate Change Scenarios for the Congo Basin” was a joint project of the Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the Climate Service Centre in Hamburg and the Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) in the Netherlands. It was funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and run for the period from late 2010 to early 2013.

Final Project Report

Cover Final Report

Within the project “Climate Change Scenarios for the Congo Basin” a dedicated interdisciplinary workflow has been established – connecting projected climate changes and thereby resulting impacts on the hydrology, forestry and agriculture with direct and indirect monetary threats and chances, and finally giving advice with respect to management strategies and the political decision making process. A report summarizing the findings of the project has been compiled and is available for download.

The report consists of four independent reports on the topics regional climate change assessment, regional hydrological change assessment, regional impact assessment and identification of regional adaptation options. The key findings of each report are condensed in the executive summary which is placed in the beginning of the report. The whole report should be cited as follows: Climate Service Center (2013): Climate Change Scenarios for the Congo Basin. [Haensler A., Jacob D., Kabat P., Ludwig F. (eds.)]. Climate Service Centre Report No. 11, Hamburg, Germany, ISSN: 2192-4058.
