Regional climate projections are required to further downscale the results provided by Atmosphere-Ocean Global Circulation Models (AOGCM) from the global scale grid size to the mesoscale grid size used in ILWRM application for mesoscale and macroscale river basins. The results provided from this climate modelling study were inputs into the hydrological modelling exercises done by the means of DANUBIA hydrological river basin model.
