Climate Change Adaptation and Integrated Water Resources Management


Water is critical for sustainable development and the eradication of poverty and hunger. Lack of access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, as well as other water-related disasters, including scarcity and pollution, are increasing because of climate change. Today, every country on every continent is affected by climate change. It is burdening national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries significantly. This phenomenon will only escalate in the future. Sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme, and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees Celsius (ᵒC) in this century, and this will have the greatest impact on the poorest and most vulnerable people. There are, however, affordable and scalable solutions available to enable countries to develop more resilient economies. By implementing Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), we can address climate change challenges, through a range of measures that will increase adaptation efforts. Water is the primary medium through which we suffer from the impacts of climate change, and IWRM can play a crucial role in how the world can adapt to climate change and reduce its effects. Improving our management of water today will prepare us to adapt tomorrow. This training material is intended to increase our understanding of climate change and to explore what we can do now. The most important immediate action concerns the way we manage our water resources. Enhanced understanding of our water resources will allow more efficient and flexible allocation systems and better-planned investment in infrastructure, both to improve access to water and reduce risks from climate change. In order to meet the 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand in hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs, while tackling climate change. We must act now – and this training package can help us to identify those actions. Our collaboration with WMO, UN Environment-DHI, IHE-Delft, REDICA and UNITAR provides the framework for this programme, and we are grateful for their support. Themba Gumbo Director, Cap-Net
