Short summary
Flow regimes of rivers will be different in the future, but how different is uncertain. Water resources decisions will rely on practical simulation tools that are sensitive to changes, can assimilate change information and flexible enough to accommodate new understanding. This paper presents some tools that can address these issues in southern Africa. Appropriate tools are available but we need more reliable forcing and model validation data and methods for making decisions with uncertain data.
