VOLTRES seeks to improve the understanding of the physical and biogeochemical functioning of Lake Volta and how the lake and its resources (fish) will respond to climate change. VOLTRES aims to strengthen local research capacity through the use of new research approaches such as ecosystem and biophysical modelling; to ensure early preparedness and response to climate change effects in the lake environment and finally to contribute to effective management of the entire lake system.     

VOLTRES is a joint project between CSIR Water Research Institute, Ghana and Aarhus University, Department of Bioscience, Denmark, running from May 2014 to April 2017.

The research is supported by Danida (13-P04-GHA).
