Water represent most complex and challenging risk to mankind couple with rapid urbanization, rising demand for food and energy. Climate changes impose uncertainties to the hydrological cycle that requires innovative ideas, techniques, and technologies to anticipate and thrive. Impacts of climate change including floods, droughts, melting glaciers, altering precipitation intensity and sessional shift among others, is demanding resilience and solutions to cope with increasing extreme weather events and climate variabilities. Reducing predictability of water availability is putting pressure on the water storage, water supplies, infrastructures, and sustainable development. These variabilities propelling the world to change the governess and management practices of water resources.
This seminar is intended to increase the participants’ understanding about climate change and water to explore possible solutions. There are actions that can be taken to prepare for a more variable climate and we can make a case to our policy makers to prepare for change. The most important immediate action concerns the way we manage our water resources. Improving our management of water today will prepare us to adapt tomorrow. Improved understanding of our water resources will allow more efficient and flexible allocation systems and better investment in infrastructure, both to improve access to water and reduce risks from climate change.
