Deluge and drought: Australia's water security in a changing climate

Source(s):  Climate Council of Australia

The report explores how climate change is influencing the water cycle globally as well as in Australia. It describes the economic importance of the Australian water sector, the changes that are already occurring because of climate change, the health implications of these changes, the water energy nexus, and the impacts of changes in the water cycle on urban water supplies, agricultural productivity and natural ecosystems. It also examines global ‘hot spots’ where changes in the water cycle are already occurring, where slower, long-term changes could lead to high risks, and discuss the possible disruption of global food trade from droughts in critical regions.
