                         climate changes on the hydrology of the Cerrado basins, this paper 
                         investigates the hydrological impacts of climate change throughout

                         this purpose, the SWAT hydrological model driven by the 
                         downscaling of the HadGEM2-ES and MIROC5 global climate models 
                         associated with RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 scenarios were used in three 
                         time slices (20112040, 20412070 and 20712099). The Standardized 
                         Precipitation Index (SPI) and the Standardized Streamflow Index 
                         (SSFI) were used to characterize droughts. In general, the results 
                         showed that the duration, intensity and frequency of the 
                         meteorological and hydrological droughts are expected to increase 
                         during the future periods. However, the hydrological droughts are 
                         projected to be larger than the meteorological droughts. 
                         Reductions in the streamflow are indicated in all future time 
                         slices and under both RCPs, especially, during dry periods, which 
                         may cause negative impacts in the ecological functions of the 
                         Cerrado biome, risk for reduction of the recharge of aquifers and 
                         risk for the electric energy production in northern Brazil.",
