Water quality is deteriorating and its availability is decreasing with time. This chapter presents the implications of climate change for water in agriculture and environment in dry areas. Further adaptation strategies for sustainable use of water resources under changing climatic conditions is proposed.
This chapter analyzes the impacts of climate change on water availability and its quality. It considers the ongoing adaptation efforts and the problems faced in implementing these strategies. Certain guidelines and recommendations for addressing climate change in the water sector are also proposed.
This chapter elucidates the impacts of climate change on water quality and availability. Factors that govern these impacts are highlighted and certain adaptation guidelines are proposed.
Water is a nonrenewable resource directly affected by climate change. All stakeholders, including policy makers, water managers, and water users will benefit from this chapter.
Climate change has significant impact on water quality and availability. However, not many studies have been devoted to exploring the impacts of climate change and the possible measures to mitigate these impacts on water resources. Thus, the management of original and valuable work on the subject is presented.
