Tap versus Bottled Water in Kampala, Uganda: Analyses of Consumers’ Perception alongside Bacteriological and Physicochemical Quality
(Journal of Environmental and Public Health, 2022)
In Uganda, tap water is always ensured to be potable. However, people are not sure whether tap water is generally safe for drinking without being boiled. Conversely, bottled water consumption is on the increase in Uganda. ...
Analyses of community willingness-to-pay and the influencing factors towards restoration of River Malaba floodplains
(Environmental Challenges, 2021)
The high productivity of soils along River Malaba floodplains and various functions (like, transport and recreation) increase the desire for humankind settlement adjacent to floodplain corridors. However, human life and ...
Historical Rainfall and Evapotranspiration Changes over Mpologoma Catchment in Uganda
(Advances in Meteorology, 2020)
Changes in the long-term (1948–2016) rainfall and evapotranspiration over Mpologoma catchment were analysed using gridded (0.25° × 0.25°) Princeton Global Forcing data. Trend and variability were assessed using a nonparametric ...
Changes in precipitation and evapotranspiration over Lokok and Lokere catchments in Uganda
(Bulletin of Atmospheric Science and Technology, 2021)
This study analysed long-term (1948–2016) changes in gridded (0.25° × 0.25°) Princeton Global Forcing (PGF) precipitation and potential evapotranspiration (PET) data over Lokok and Lokere catchments. PGF-based and station ...
Hydrodynamic Modelling of Floods and Estimating Socio‑economic Impacts of Floods in Ugandan River Malaba Sub‑catchment
(Earth Systems and Environment, 2022)
River Malaba sub-catchment tends to experience dramatic flooding events, with several socio-economic impacts to the nearby communities, such as loss of lives and destructions of physical infrastructure. Analysis of ...
Water availability trends across water management zones in Uganda
(Atmospheric Science Letters, 2021)
This study assessed trends in gridded (0.25 0.25 ) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) precipitation, potential evapotranspiration (PET), and precipitation minus PET (PMP) across the four water management zones ...
