The impact of climate change on water is imminent which in turn holds serious implications for enjoyment of the human right to water. Both quantity and quality of water are foreseen to get affected through impacts on water. This chapter aims to explore, first, the challenges posed by climate change impacts on water to the exercise of human right to water and, second, the prospects for effectively addressing these challenges so that the right can be universally realized. Among the prospects, on the basis of empirical evidence from India, it argues that local communities possess traditional knowledge and practices which enable resilience to climatic impacts on water. The chapter contends that this body of knowledge and practices regarding water can serve as an effective blueprint for adaptation to climate change.
