FutureWater held for knowledge exchange sessions with the Water Resources Authority responsible for the WEAP model of the Tana Basin. The training focused on how to extract Climate Change data, how to interpret this data, and how to set-it up within the WEAP model.
The development of the WEAP model for the Thika Chania catchment has come to a stage that it is sufficiently mature for being used over the next year to assess different management scenarios for the Water Allocation Plan. These management options can now be evaluated considering climate change impacts on water resources for different horizons, namely 2030 and 2050.
With this updated model, and the provided trainings, the Water Resources Authority of Kenya is now able to extract Climate Change data for different regions, set-up different WEAP models for different basins, and interpret the results for different time horizons.
