|Abstract: ||The Nile River is mainly sourced by the Lake Victoria basin catchment. Potable water is vital in this region. Greenhouse
gases induced climate change is believed to affect the water resources system leading to alteration in planning and management.
Previous studies had been carried out in focus on the pollution, fisheries, wetland of the Lake Victoria basin, while
limited research in view of the effects of climate change on hydrological regime. In view of the importance of water in that
region, assessing the potential climate change impacts is necessary. Factors such as downscaling of climate scenarios
obtain from general circulation models and climate scenarios should be taken into consideration.|
