Lying within the Guinea savannah belt on the southern fringes of the Sahel region, the UWR is characterized by a single rainy season which falls between May and October (wet season) with an average total of 75–115 cm of rain per annum. The savannah conditions and short rainy season are also associated with rapid runoff (Songsore and Denkabe, 1995; Nsiah-Gyabaah, 1994). Yet despite the aridity and water constraints, the economic base of the region hinges on agriculture with over 80% of the population depending on farming (including poultry and livestock production) for their livelihood (Luginaah, 2008; Songsore and Denkabe, 1995).
