In this study we assess the impact of climate change on water resources by using uncorrected and bias corrected data from the regional climate model REMO simulations over the Senegal River Basin. Both simulations were used as input of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology – Hydrological Model over the Upper Senegal Basin. Applying the bias correction simulations of present day climate, substantially improved for both temporal and spatial variations of the basin’s climate and hydrology. The bias correction does not impact significantly the climate change signals over the Senegal River Basin. Furthermore, the basin will likely to experience a decrease a water resources in the coming decades.
