    Objective

    AQUALAND analyzes the contribution of upstream aquatic and terrestrial systems to aquatic habitats. It is a grid-based watershed model. The software has two main components, the Watershed Delineator Tool and the Threats Assessment Tool. The watershed delineator identifies a watershed for each input aquatic core. The tool can delineate a circular buffer around each core, the entire watershed, a constrained watershed determined by following a flow grid upstream from a starting point and using a resistant surface classified by stream order and landuse or a user-defined watershed.

    This report describes the climate change impacts already detected in Belize, such as warmer daytime and night time temperatures and decreasing trends in rainfall. It highlights that adverse impacts of climate change on the health, agriculture and tourism sectors have also been observed. The report argues that these negative impacts and their consequences are indicative of increasing vulnerabilities to climate variability and change.

    AGricultural Non-Point Source Pollution Model (AGNPS) is a joint USDA - Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and - Natural Resources Conservation Service system of computer models developed to predict non point source pollutant loadings within agricultural watersheds. It contains a continuous simulation surface runoff model designed to assist with determining BMPs, the setting of TMDLs, and for risk & cost/benefit analyses.

    Objective

    Rice cultivation system is directly affected by climate conditions and changes. This study aimed to analyze the impact of climate change on the water requirements of agricultural reservoirs using a reservoir water-balance model that includes climate change data, the paddy rice growing season and changes in land use. The results showed that due to increasing temperature, transplanting and heading dates were delayed 5-25 days and 0-10 days, respectively, in comparison to the baseline. The decrease in rates could be the result of IWR and increasing watershed runoff (average 10.7% to 27.0%).
