Case studies consist of the in-depth analysis, at the district or small region level of a limited number (1-2) of key sectors. Climate change impacts are assessed aat the local leval through consultation of the various stakeholders, including local authorities, development partners, private sector operators and local communities.
Five case studies were implemented during the study:
Case study on malaria prevalence in the districts of Tororo and Kabale: This study looks in depth at the potential impacts of climate change on malaria in the Tororo and Kabale regions. This study attempts to quantify the possible increases in the cases of malaria due to climate change in 20125 and 2050 building on the existing evidence, and assesses the corresponding economic costs.

Case study on infrastructure in the Kampala Urban Area: The methodology used in this case study combined qualitatitive and quantitative approaches and entailed a thorough review of literature and a large number of interviews. The lack of crucial data on the economic costs of the current and likely future impacts of climate change has however reduced the scope of the economic analysis.

Case study on Agricultural production in the Karamoja region: This case study focuses on agricultural production in three specific village locations in the Abim district (Oryeotyene North ward village, Western mixed crop farming-Agricultural zone), Napak district (Nakayot village, Central sorghum and livestock-Agro pastoralist zone) and Amudat district (Lopedot village, South eastern cattle maize-Pastoral zone). The study collected data via questionnaires and semi structured interviews of local officials and a sample of households in the three villages. It then evaluated a range of current and possible future adaptation options. Download Karamoja case study report and briefing note
Case study on Arabica coffee production in the Mount Elgon Region: The case study was focused on Bududa district of Mount Elgon, which is typical of agro ecological zones in the region and well covered by coffee cooperatives and private companies. The case study considered the costs and benefits of coffee production under a "Business as Usual" (BAU) scenario and a "Climate Smart Agriculture" (CSA) scenario, considering current climate variability over a 15 year period and based on the information collected in the field. The study then considered the effects of an inreased intensity and frequency of extreme events. Download Mount Elgon case study report and briefing note
Case study on Water and Energy sector impacts in the Mpanga river catchment: The potential exists for significant conflict between energy and water supply sectors for the use of river water for hydro electricity generation and supplying the needs of multiple users. This potential is likely to be exacerbated by socioeconomic development, population growth and climate change, all of which are likely to place significant additional stress to the water systems in Uganda. This case study attempts to value the impact of climate change on these two sectors, drawing onthe results of an analysis of a range of climate change models (in liaison with a companion study funded by Expertise France - BRL ingénierie, 2015). Field data was collected via questionnaires and semi structured interviews of local officials and a sample of households in the villages. Download Mpanga case study report and briefing note
