Impacts Of Climate Change On Water Resources

• Another major concern of climate change will be increasing pressures on fresh water supplies

• Climate change will significantly affect the distribution of rain around the globe

• While some areas will drastically start running out of water others will experience frequent flooding due to stronger monsoons and heavy rainfalls (both of these events lead to a diminution of available water)

• Groundwater storage is already running out in many parts of the world. Many of these supplies are also contaminated and unusable

• Some areas will become much dryer, raising concerns about the availability of fresh water for millions of people (e.g. Central Africa)

• Many lakes will dry out as a result of increased temperatures and evaporation
