Water 3rd Webinar | Climate Change and Water Resources: Evidence, Impacts, Adaptation


Climate variations have always impacted water resources. Global concern is that the near-future rate of climate change may reach levels of which the impact is beyond our capacity to respond. Have we learned anything from the past? Is it possible to respond and take adaptation and mitigation measures? The webinar will address these issues, although in a focused sense. Three contributions will be presented: (1) historical climate change and adaptation technology; (2) water availability in southern Europe and the measures to be undertaken; (3) climate change impacts on droughts and water resources in the Mediterranean area and appropriate water resources management.
