Impact of Climate Change on Fresh Water Resources
Location: Student Services Center Room W-201
Fresh water is crucial to human society. However, it is expected to become increasingly scarce in the future, and this is partly due to climate change. Approximately only 2.5% of Earth's water is freshwater. Of that 2.5%, almost 70% is snow and ice, 30% is groundwater, less than 0.5% is surface water. Climate change will significantly change these proportions on a global scale. It is estimated that at least one billion people in dry regions may face increasing water scarcity. Potential impact of climate change on Hawaii and other Pacific islands will also be included in the presentation. Education and research will be essential to providing the knowledge, skills and technology needed to combat fresh water scarcity in the future. Part of the International Topics Speaker Series sponsored by the United Nations Association-Hawaii Island Chapter and the UH Hilo International Student Services & Intercultural Education program. Free.
