Short summary
The current study aims to investigate the future climate change impacts on the hydrology of the Dano catchment in Burkina Faso, thus contributing to the management of water resources in the region. Temperature and bias corrected precipitation data from an ensemble of six RCMs–GCMs were used as input for the Water flow and balance Simulation Model to simulate water balance components. The results indicate potential increase and decrease in future discharge in the catchment.
