Description: SEI developed WEAP models of the urban water utilities in three cities surrounding Lake Victoria. These models have been used to assess the potential impacts of climate change on available water supplies and water demands in these utilities in order to assess impacts to system performance and to define appropriate adaptation measures that will allow these utilities to offer an adequate level of potable water service to their residents.
