Climate change and mountain water resources: overview and recommendations for research, management and policy.

Principales Conclusiones

At a global scale, there is currently not enough knowledge to move much beyond rather broad statements on future changes in the timing and amounts of mountain runoff. More detailed regional studies are needed to provide water management with more reliable scenario projections. A number of research areas are relevant in this context, of which precipitation downscaling may currently have the highest prospect. Also, a more integrated approach to mountain water resources research, e.g. by linking more closely hydrological and climatological research or by considering the impacts of land use changes.
