Managing Water & Climate Risks

Climate change seriously impacts water resources. Due to changes in precipitation regimes, the risks of floods and drought are increasing dramatically with more extreme magnitude than before. Meanwhile, water is a key driver of economic and social development while it also has a basic function in maintaining the integrity of the natural environment. However, water is only one of a number of vital natural resources and it is imperative that water issues are not considered in isolation. Managers, whether in the government or private sectors, have to make difficult decisions on water allocation. More and more they have to apportion diminishing supplies between ever-increasing demands. Drivers such as demographic and climatic changes further increase the stress on water resources. The traditional fragmented approach is no longer viable, while a more holistic approach to water management is essential in context of climate change.

This workshop invites experts from Afghanistan, Australia, India, Pakistan, and Vietnam to share their lessons learned in terms of water management under the risk of climate change
