Climate Change and Water

Presentation slides: Climate Change and Water

Synopsis:

Global warming is changing the water cycle. Predictions include heavier rainfall events and larger variations. Asia, where floods, droughts and water pollution often cause severe disaster, is especially vulnerable to impacts of global warming. The Asian countries cooperatively integrate data from earth observation satellites and in-situ networks with other types of data, including numerical weather prediction model outputs, geographical information, and socio-economic data, to generate information for making sound water resources management decisions.

Professor Koike’s “Climate Change and Water” Public Lecture at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy is a part of the first Executive Programme on Leadership in Water Governance, organised by the Institute of Water Policy together with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and PUB Singapore. The programme aims to empower policy makers and senior managers in water utilities in Asia to cope with new institutional, regulatory, and financial challenges.
