📙 Climate Change in Contrasting River Basins by Jeroen Aerts, Peter Droogers — epub download


Aerts (Institute for Environmental Studies, Free U., The Netherlands) and Droogers (FutureWater, The Netherlands) present the results of project that sought to develop a generic methodology for developing and assessing adaptation strategies for river basins impacted by climate change. The volume first explains the general framework of the methodology, which derives socioeconomic and environmental storylines for the basins, selects models at basin and field scales for simulating hydrology and food production, assesses climate change and climate variability impacts on regional water management, and defines and evaluations adaptation strategies for water managers. The application of the methodology is then explained for seven case studies from the Mekong basin; South-east Asia; the Rhine basin, Western Europe; the Sacramento basin, US; the Syr Darya basin, Central Asia; the Volta Basin, Ghana; the Walawe Basin, Sri Lanka; and the Zayandeh basin; Iran. Distributed in the US by Oxford U. Press.
