Hydropower provides almost all of the country's electricity; a reliance on freshwater supply makes it a highly vulnerable energy source to climate change and environmental degradation.DocumentAdapting to Climate Change in China, 2012Climate change adds pressure on China's water resources, which are already under intense stress. Therefore, the water sector is a top priority in China’s national adaptation programme.DocumentPLoS ONE, 2013As one of the most carbon (C) rich ecosystems in the world, the conservation and restoration of tropical wetlands represent a priority for climate change mitigation. Deforestation, agri/aqua culture conversion, pollution and coastal development have all contributed to the loss of over one-third of mangroves in the last fifty years; a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions.Document
Water supply and sanitation in Latin America and the Caribbean: goals and sustainable solutions: proposals for the 6th World Water ForumDevelopment bank of Latin America, 2012The regional context presents an unprecedented opportunity for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to close the infrastructure gap in water supply and sanitation services over the next 20 years.DocumentWorld Bank, 2012This report, produced for the World Bank by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics, attempts to describe what climate change impacts are likely to be felt in a ‘4°C world', i.e. a world where global average temperatures have risen four degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
