The rapidly changing climate conditions in Uganda are likely to cause increase of extreme weather events such as erratic rainfall pattern, floods, landslides, hailstorms, ice melting, heat and drought that may lead to a multitude of livelihoods disruptions. The Integrated Database for African Policymakers, (IDAPS), will integrate climate, crops, fisheries and hydrology information with livelihoods data so policy makers can examine the synthesised evidence and develop more appropriate national responses to climate change impacts, particularly among the most vulnerable populations in rural parts of Uganda.

The HyCRISTAL (Integrating Hydro-Climate Science into Policy Decisions for Climate-Resilient Infrastructure and Livelihoods in East Africa) is one of five projects within the Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) programme, funded by the Department for International Development and Natural Environment Research Council in the UK under Grant number, NE/M020371/1. The Walker Institute ( at the University of Reading is the consortium co-lead of HyCRISTAL, and the rural adaptation research leads.
