IPCC: Climate change is intensifying the water cycle

  • IPCC: Climate change is intensifying the water cycle

About the entity

UN-Water coordinates the efforts of UN entities and international organizations working on water and sanitation issues.

The headline from the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report is stark: climate change is widespread, rapid and intensifying, and urgent action is needed to drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Some of the most noticeable impacts come from the way climate change is intensifying the water cycle, bringing more intense rainfall and associated flooding, as well as more intense drought in many regions.

Water security and the climate resilience of water and sanitation systems are critical to the stability of global society and to sustainable development efforts.
