Climate change & malaria transmissions

Using global hydrological models, new research from experts from the University of Leeds, Nottingham, Lincoln and Namibia, showed that changes in climate will cause a net decrease in the number of locations in Africa suitable for malaria transmissions from 2025.

Simon Gosling, Professor of Climate Risks & Environmental Modelling at the University of Nottingham, co-authored the study and helped to coordinate the water modelling experiments used in the research.

He said: “Our study highlights the complex way that surface water flows change the risk of malaria transmission across Africa, made possible thanks to a major research programme conducted by the global hydrological modelling community to compile and make available estimates of climate change impacts on water flows across the planet.”
