In recent decades, anthropogenic climate change has also begun to alter freshwater ecosystems, and this force will continue to increase, raising a number of new concerns for the future quality of freshwater resources.
In this report, the WWF explore many of these concerns and propose seven elements of an adaptive water strategy: develop institutional capacity; create flexible allocation systems and agreements; reduce external non-climate pressures; help species, human communities and economies to move their ranges; think carefully about water infrastructure development and management; institute sustainable flood management policies; and support climate-aware government and development planning.
