Full description The objective of this task was to develop an approach for model selection that is consistent with both the IPCC framework and national climate change initiatives. The selection was based on a set of climatic criteria that are relevant to both SA current climate and future climate changes. In terms of relevance to the SA current climate, this necessarily involved testing the realism of model simulation of SA climate drivers and their impacts. This built on the outputs from Task 1.
