AFP: Climate change ‘threatens Nile, Limpopo rivers’

AFP: Climate change ‘threatens Nile, Limpopo rivers’.

At the International Forum on Water and Food in Pretoria, the think-tank Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, warned the changes could have major effects for countries that share the rivers.

“In rivers around the world, the study found that higher global temperatures would make more water evaporate from rivers, which in most cases should be set off by increased rainfall.

But within river basins, changes could prove dramatic, and flip weather trends from wet to dry for regions that previously have known consistent patterns, it found.”
