Climate change and water resources

Climate change, Water

Rising temperatures - prompted by climate change - adversely affect the hydrological cycle, resulting in prolonged droughts and intensified rainfall.

This paper describes how climate change is affecting the world we live in, and why climate change needs to be a priority in development planning, including the inequitable burden it places on the poor and developing countries, as well as the impacts on the world's water resources.

Finally, this paper concludes by presenting measures to address climate change, including some current campaigns.
