Richard Taylor addresses meetings in Copenhagen and Istanbul

Adapting water strategies to global change

Dr Richard Taylor spoke at an international scientific congress on climate change in Copenhagen on March 10th-12th, organised to provide scientific input to the policy discussions to be held later this year at the Copenhagen Climate Summit COP15.  The focus of Richard's paper was the role of groundwater in enabling communities in sub-Saharan Africa to adapt to the projected impacts of climate change on freshwater resources.

He also spoke on March 17th at a special session of the 5th World Water Forum in Istanbul on adaptation strategies in the water sector to global change.
