Join us to hear about Malawi’s climate and hydrological futures, featuring key insights from the Future Climate for Africa UMFULA project. Chaired by Professor Andy Dougill, closing with a Q&A.

Hosted by AFRICAP in partnership with Future Climate for Africa, this free webinar will share key Malawi-specific findings from the Future Climate for Africa UMFULA project. Chaired by Professor Andy Dougill, presenters will outline understanding of the climate risks and the effectiveness of risk management options important for developing resilience and sustaining the water-energy-food sectors.

Guest speakers will discuss results emerging from decision making under uncertainty approaches that combine stakeholder engagement with water resources modelling to explore future risks and the ability of risk management options to support resilient decision making in Malawi.

Speakers will also share insights from engagement with stakeholders across the tea sector in Malawi on generation of site-specific future climate information that could help in selecting appropriate adaptation strategies.

This session will close with a Q&A with guest speakers and discussant David Mkwambisi, Malawi University of Science & Technology, Head of the Centre for Innovation & Industrial Research & Malawi Co-ordinator for FCFA UMFULA project.
