Recommendation to improve water resource management for better climate adaptation

Posted: 2011-05-18

Building resilience through improved water management to better prepare for the impact of climate change is the best short-term strategy to combat the effects of climate change on water-related sectors of the national economy.

This was the opinion of participants at a High-Level Round Table (HLRT) on the Strategy for Extreme Climate Adaptation in China, organised in April by GWP China, the Asian Development Bank and the Office of State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters in Beijing. Consequently, one of the recommendations was that since climate change has the greatest impact on water resources, better water resources management is needed to adapt to climate change. This recommendation was endorsed by the Water Resources Ministry that agreed to strengthen its efforts in this area.
