Results from climate change modelling exercises consistently indicate that many of the world’s major river basins may experience more severe droughts and floods. Southern Africa is particularly vulnerable to the extreme variability of precipitation given its high dependence on rain-fed agriculture and water resources for livelihoods; limited knowledge on climate change; limited resources for adaptation; and weak institutions and capacity to regulate river and stream flow.

The purpose of this paper is to identify and profile key research institutions in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) conducting research on the impact of climate change on water resources with the aim of creating a regional network on climate change, human health, water and food security.
