CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION FOR WATER RESOURCES: MOVING FROM SCIENCE TO POLICY
While we don’t know how fast climate is changing, how exactly these changes will manifest themselves, and whether some changes are irreversible, we do know that the steps we take to adapt to climate change also help us adapt to other global challenges to our missions and operations, because they share a common goal: to improve resilience and decrease vulnerability.
This presentation will address the need to closely couple science and engineering, allowing for refinements in policy as scientific knowledge grows and speeding the development of policy and guidance needed to implement climate change adaptation for water resources management.
