The HyVic Planning Workshop is a special two-day science and implementation planning workshop focused on a regional hydroclimate study related to the Hydrology of the Lake Victorian Basin (tentatively named HyVic). The workshop is organized under the auspices of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) Project and is focused on a regional hydroclimate study related to the Hydrology of the Lake Victorian Basin (HyVic) within the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP). The workshop will focus on the main themes of the current science plan including issues and impacts of the hydrological cycle of the Lake Victoria Basin region associated with extremes (including floods and droughts), the water and energy budget, and hydrological applications, as well as other topics relevant to capacity building and education. Preliminary implementation steps will be discussed and the outcome will be a new draft plan that can contribute to the initiation of an actionable Pan African Research Agenda and which identifies the key activities, in each scientific and societal topic area, that can be formed into the framework of a GEWEX Regional Hydroclimate Project.
