Hello !

I want to know if we can calculate the impact of climate change on future water availability using temperature/precipitation projections in WEAP.If yes, please give the direction.

Best,
Garima

Yes, WEAP includes several different rainfall-runoff hydrology models that can be used to study the impacts of changing climate (temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind) and changing land use on water availability (both surface and groundwater).
