World Conservation Congress Session - Water and Climate Change Debate: What use is nature for people and development?

08 September 2008 | Event

Climate change is a current reality and its long-term impact will have an impact on water resources. However, other more immediate global change such as deforestation, mining, agriculture, and urban sprawl in watersheds, are threatening water resources for more than half the world’s people.

The Water and Climate Change Debate poses some controversial questions around investment in climate change vs. development, and types of adaptation strategies such as building engineered infrastructure and rehabilitating natural systems.
