Expert View: "Climate change impacts on water will have far-reaching social, environmental and economic implications. As Dr Mats Eriksson, (Director of Climate Change and Water at the Stockholm International Water Institute) says, "There is no water sector. Water is the resource which is fundamental to all sectors”.  So whether we are looking at the impacts on agriculture in east Africa, energy generation in Europe, complex global supply chains, manufacturing in BRICS countries, transport in the USA, or the implications for heating, cooling and protecting our own properties from flooding, the impacts on water from a changing climate are real, complex and serious."

   - John Firth, CEO and Co-Founder of Acclimatise.
