Adapting to Climate Change in Water Resources and Water Services

Access to potable water, sanitation and water for irrigation is already a serious problem in the developing world, especially in the semi-arid regions of Central Asia and Africa.

This paper notes that the problem is going to become more serious with population growth and climate change compounding the existing inadequate delivery systems and dysfunctional management institutions.

It also says that current water management practices may not be robust enough to cope with the impacts of climate change on water supply reliability, flood risk, health, agriculture, energy and aquatic systems.

The paper suggests infrastructure improvements, policy changes, economic adaptation and behavioural changes to deal with the future situation.
