Climate change adaptation technologies for water: a practitioner’s guide to adaptation technologies for increased water sector resilience

This guide aims to help address the challenge of identifying and evaluating appropriate solutions to hydrological hazards, by providing the missing identification and evaluation assistance that those looking for adaptation solutions initially face. More specifically, it focuses on adaptation technologies for building resilience to climate change induced hazards in the water sector. It provides a simple and comprehensive overview of specific water technologies and techniques that address challenges resulting from climate change and help to build adaptive capacity. The cornerstone of this guide is the water climate change adaptation technology taxonomy developed for the purposes of this guide, systematizing the most pressing climate change challenges in water sector, and their corresponding water adaptation technologies.
