Climate Change and WASH Services Delivery: Is Improved WASH Governance the Key to Effective Mitigation and Adaptation?
This paper discusses the impact of climate change on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services delivery.
It discusses whether or not climate change is different from other challenges facing the WASH sector and, more specifically, if new interventions, methods, tools or approaches are needed to address climate change challenges.
Climate change is likely to have a bearing on freshwater systems and, by 2050, the area of land under water stress is projected to have more than doubled.
The paper says that by the middle of the 21st century, annual average river runoff and water availability are projected to increase as a result of climate change.
