Considerations on climate variability and change in Spain
Research Areas

  • Agricultural economics
This chapter summarizes the existing knowledge about climate change in Spain and its potential impacts on water resources and demands. Increasing evidence of climate changing conditions has prompted Spanish water agencies and governments to take into account possible water scenarios, which mostly indicate a reduction of runoff and the increased likelihood of extreme events, into basin management plans. Yet, uncertainties are still high and predictions have considerable interval ranges. This chapter argues that water institutions and adaptive management are important to anticipate no regret measures to tackle the worsening of hydrological regimes. Also greater efforts need to be placed in searching for mitigation measures.
