Climate Change and the Water Industry: Practical Responses and Actions
This paper outlines the key vulnerabilities of the water industry and how it will be affected by climate change.
Low-lying countries and river deltas will be under threat of rising sea levels while mountainous regions will be affected by retreating glaciers and snowmelt.
On the other hand, arid and semi-arid areas will experience less rainfall and increased evaporation.
A challenge for the industry will be to enhance the capacity to cope with impacts on groundwater, surface water, flow seasonability, urban flooding, potable water supply, wastewater treatment, ecosystems, and social and economic activity.
