Monirul Qader Mirza, Ian Burton. "This book addresses the most pressing water resource issues in South Asia, particularly in relation to climate change and variability. This is a region with abundant water during the monsoon when floods occur, often very devastating and with droughts and scarcity of water during the dry period. Inevitably there are wide seasonal and spatial variations. These extreme events often cause substantial damages to infrastructure, property, and animal and human population. Agriculture and other key economic sectors suffer greatly during these events. The results of climate and hydrologic models indicate the possibility of increased vulnerability unless adequate adaptation measures are designed and implemented under a policy framework that includes active participation of the stakeholders." "This book should be of interest to water and climate managers; engineers; hydrologists and modelers; vulnerability, impact and adaptation (VIA) researchers; social scientists; academics and students focusing on water resources, geography, and natural hazards; water policy makers; international donors and financial institutions; NGOs; and media specialists."--Jacket.
