Under the FCFA HyCRISTAL project, Walker recently contributed in the production of these climate risk narratives. These stories describe three possible futures for rural East Africa in 2050. How the climate will change in the coming decades is uncertain, so three different plausible futures are included to demonstrate this range. These futures do not cover every possible outcome projected by climate models. The stories also describe some of the resulting impacts that could be experienced in rural areas. However, these impacts will vary across the region due to a range of local factors.

In addition to the rural climate narratives, the wider HyCRISTAL team also produced similar infographics for the urban setting. Please read these here:
