Climate Change Adaptation in the Water Sector (X484)

Many people within the water sector are aware that climate change is expected to have serious consequences for water resource management, but they are unsure how to incorporate climate information into their management structures. The main purpose of this book is to offer a compendium of specific adaptation strategies for students, water managers and decision makers. After reading this book, water professionals and advanced students should feel much more comfortable in using climate data in decision support and/or managing water resources. They will know what kind of data or information on climate change and variability is available and how they can be used within the water sector.

The book consists of two parts: the first part describes the general issues and is written mainly by the editors of the book and the second part contains specific case studies.
