Abstract
Climate change and future developments can influence the availability of groundwater resources for water supply. To mitigate their effects on aquifers systems and the dependent human communities and industrial activities in Africa, it is relevant to consider them in long-term water management plans. In order to advance this understanding, this study described here evaluates the effect of climate change and anticipated increased groundwater demand from a coastal aquifer located in southern Kenya ...
