Groundwater is the only permanent water resources in the Klela basin which are threatened due to the climate variability and change and population growth. Therefore, this study was focused on assessing the impacts of climate change and population growth on groundwater resources in the Klela basin using RCP 4.5 and RCP8.5 scenarios. The overall result shows that groundwater storage and groundwater levels are decreasing over time especially in the 2030s. This decrease is more significant in climate change than population growth.
