An Integrated Assessment of Climate Change Impact on Crop Production in the Nioro du Rip Basin of Senegal I: Crop Modelling

“This study has shown that lower projected future rainfall regimes in Nioro du Rip Basin would adversely affect crop productivity. The use of base technology (i.e. current crop varieties) most often resulted in lower yield under future climate. The introduction of the changed technology (improved variety) will significantly reduce the climate change effect.”
