Managing our water resources:
Adapting and becoming resilient to climate change
Climate change is set to both increase winter rainfall and lead to hotter, drier summers. This requires urgent action now, to adapt and enhance our resilience to the twin threats of increasing flood risk and the likelihood of more frequent heatwaves and droughts. At JBA, our focus is on supporting clients prepare and adapt to these diverging conditions, encouraging and delivering effective water management and integration.
The impacts of climate change are compounded by pressures from our rapidly growing population. The management and resilience of our water resources is fast becoming a critical theme to affect the UK. Our water resources team is expert in translating hydrological and hydrogeological information, alongside climate change projections, to support the process of planning, development and use and protection of our precious water resources, in terms of both water quantity and quality, across all sectors.
