Water is an important piece in the mitigation puzzle but the single most important key to adaptation. Changes in water availability will impact food security and have already proven to trigger refugee dynamics and political instability. With a changing climate, characteristics of hydrological extreme events will change. More floods and more severe droughts will await us in future.
