The Nature Conservancy and its partners designed the Yaque del Norte Water Fund explicitly with climate change in mind. Its activities will contribute to regulating base flow and reducing soil erosion with the aim of reducing future water security risk and helping communities build resilience to other climate change impacts like sea level rise. With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), The Nature Conservancy worked with Riverside Technology to assess the long-term impacts of climate change when combined with different land use and land cover projections. Researchers used SWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) to develop scenarios out to 2055, the results of which inform what conservation activities the water fund should specifically include to produce the greatest contribution to base flow and lowest sediment loads for present and future conditions.
