Climate Change

BIG_ww9 - CopyFreshwater Future’s Climate Program focuses on how to recognize and incorporate climate change adaptation into the work you are already doing to protect water resources.  The need for climate change adaptation is based on the fact that no matter how much we attempt to mitigate greenhouse gases, it is evident that sufficient results cannot be achieved in the short term.  The Earth is committed to continuing climate change.  We cannot eliminate at this moment in time climate change impacts.  These impacts will play out everywhere – in cities, rural communities, inland lakes and rivers, forests and other areas.  The impacts will include more intense storms, increased precipitation, flooding of communities as well as drought and water supply shortages.  These impacts will cause property damage as well as damage to ecosystems. Thus, to protect both human and natural communities, we must develop climate adaptation strategies.
