The future of humanity
Impacts of climate change
When it comes to connecting the dots between climate change, extreme weather and health, the lines are clear.
The earth is saying something with record heat, drought, storms and fire. Scientists are telling us this is what global warming looks like.
Climate change,water and risks
Clues of climate change
These climate-driven pressures are on top of other existing drivers adversely affecting water availability for agriculture and it is expected that climate change will intensify competition.
Reconciling this competition will be the main water management challenge and agriculture will have to address the challenge much more progressively. Allocations to cities, industry, rural water supply and sanitation are unlikely to be materially affected by climate change but, collectively, they will reduce the quantity of water that can be allocated to agricultural use and hydro-environmental services.
