Climate change will impact upon freshwater resources in severe and often unpredictable ways. The impacts of climate change are compounded with increasing human demands for water and vulnerability to floods and droughts. Water institutions and infrastructure are targets for adaptation action. Professor Jim Hall, Co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship, will ask what is the nature and scale of adaptation that might be required, and what are the limits to adaptation?
