Analysis of Existing Weather and Climate Information for Malawi


The paper reviews the scope of weather and climate information available for Malawi, taking into account both southern African and international sources of information. It also provides an overview of Malawi’s current climate, nature of recent observed changes, and projected future changes based on a combination of Global Climate Model (GCM) ensembles (under the Representative Concentration Pathways, RCP, scenarios) as cited in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report, including both statistically- and dynamically-downscaled projections.
