The Impact of Global Change on Water Resources: The Response of UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme

This publication provides an overview of the likely effects of global change (population growth, climate change, urbanization, expansion of infrastructure, migration, land conversion and pollution) on water resources and the International Hydrology Programme’s response to these challenges. It reflects information about the water related impacts of climate change as documented in reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the most comprehensive scientific assessment of this issue to date.
