UN-Water sets the theme for World Water Day, and this year it's the inextricable link between water and climate change. From groundwater management to palaeoclimate studies in Australia, our community contributors share their thoughts and expertise on this theme, summarised below.
Uncertainty and ambiguity from climate changes adds a unique and challenging aspect to effective water governance, says Todd Guilfoos. This is also the subject of Vignesh Sridharan's post, which highlights the vulnerability of Sub-Saharan Africa to future climate uncertainties and water availability.
Grant Ferguson discusses the complex link between climate change and groundwater resources. Sticking with groundwater, Richard Taylor revisits his 2012 Nature Climate Change Review 'Ground water and climate change' and highlights key developments in the field since its publication.
Focusing on Australia, Tessa Vance's post discusses the use of palaeoclimate records in determining how much of the country's recent record breaking droughts, floods and wildfires is due to climate change.
