This book on water and climate change goes beyond the usual and predictable analyses, by bringing religion and values into a discussion that is often dominated by technocratic solutions. The three case studies of Jakarta, Cape Town, and Amsterdam demonstrate the challenges of water management in urban areas and the role religion can play in addressing them.

Climate Change Science, Risk and the Paris Agreement. The scientific knowledge that gases, accumulating mainly from the burning of fossil fuels and the clearing of forests, add to the natural greenhouse effect has been known since the 19th century [].

The literature indicates that climate change poses risks to the delivery of water management objectives, but that these risks depend on local catchment and water body conditions.

Climate change affects the status of water bodies, and it affects the effectiveness of measures to manage the water environment and meet policy by: In view of the consensus that climate change is happening, scientists have documented several findings about Ugandas recent climate, as well as its variability and change.

The purpose of this study is to review what has been documented, thus it gives an overview of what is known and seeks to explain the implications of a changing climate, hence what ought to be known to create a climate.
