Coping With Changing Land

Climate change will likely increase drought—How will we cope?

The world relies on fresh water. Whether it is from the ground, sky or glaciers, water sustains life. Droughts already affect many different regions and industries. As we look toward the future, water will likely become in short supply in some places due to changing weather patterns, rising temperatures, and growing populations.
