Summary of Climate Services for the Water Sector

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Climate change has a significant impact on the water sector. Global warming can potentially change the amount, distribution and intensity of precipitation. These changes can have large impacts on water availability and flood risks. The water sector is increasingly concerned about climate change and realizes that it needs to adapt to climate change. However, implementation of adaptation measures and the use of climate change information is still limited due large uncertainties and a mismatch between information supplied and needed. Eclise aimed to bridge this gap by developing climate services for seven different cases. The cases were spread throughout Europe and focussed on different aspects of water management. Cases focussed on water resources management flood risks and management, water quality and landslides. All the results of WP5 and details of the case studies are presented in Deliverable 5.1 till 5.11. This report first provides a short summary the main results of each of the cases. Thereafter general patterns are discussed including some general lesson learned.
