Special Issue "Integrated Water Assessment and Management under Climate Change"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2022) | Viewed by 6920
This issue focuses on the assessment of impacts of a changing climate on water resources and information required to support adaptive water management, using case examples, where possible. Uncertainty and risk are central to management. This is especially important, where the rate of change of climatic and other conditions means future water availability will not reflect current conditions and the current management approaches to sustainable management will no longer suffice. For example, where increasing water scarcity and variability is an issue, there may need to be a shift to alternative and more climate-resilient water sources to meet demand; a shift to greater conjunctive management; or management changes to protect water-dependent environmental values.
Articles in this issue should describe research, that for future climate:
- assesses changing water availability, including for connected water sources; or
- describes approaches to assessment of uncertainty to support adaptation strategies; or
- provides other information to support integrated water management.
For some of the vulnerable areas, there may be economic or pragmatic difficulty in using some technical approaches and innovation is required to assess and manage the resource. Every situation is different; and the use of case studies is sometimes the best way to illustrate important issues.
