Edited by Kenneth D. Frederick, formerly Senior Fellow, Resources for the Future, US
Publication Date: 2002 ISBN: 978 1 84064 500 2 Extent: 552 pp
Water Resources and Climate Change presents an authoritative collection of key articles which explore the impact and effect of climatic change on all aspects of the hydrologic cycle.

The articles selected focus upon the hydrological implications of climate change and its potential impact on water systems and water use, issues in climate impact assessment, planning and adaptation strategies and socioeconomic assessments of particular case studies.

This important volume will be an essential source of reference for water managers and planners as well as those interested in understanding the hydrological, ecological, and socioeconomic implications of climate change.
