Analysis of Crop Water Use and Soil Water Balance in Burkina Faso Using CROPWAT
The analyses reported in this series focus mainly on quantitative assessment of the economic
impacts of climate change on agriculture and the farming communities in Africa, based on
both the cross-sectional (Ricardian) method and crop response simulation modeling. The
cross sectional analysis also allowed for assessing the possible role of adaptation. Moreover,
the project employed river-basin hydrology modeling to generate additional climate attributes
for the impact assessment and climate scenario analyses such as surface runoff and
streamflow for all districts in the study countries.
