Committee on Climate Change Adaptation

Aims and Scope

The IAHR Technical Committee on Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) aims at coordinating initiatives in IAHR dealing with the study of the impact of climate change on the the hydro-environment and monitoring adaptation measures being taken in the water engineering sector, both of the structural and non structural type

It works in collaboration with other interested Technical Committees of IAHR especially with the Water Resources Management Committee .
