Water Supply Special Issue on Water Security and Management in the

Context of Climate Change and Aging Societies


Climate change may reduce water availability and increase flood risk, while aging societies may affect the societal ability to adapt to climate change. This special issue aims to highlight the latest and high level research initiatives on how water security can be monitored, assessed, modeled and improved.

Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Assessment of water infrastructure vulnerability to climate change and aging
  • Modeling water consumption changes due to aging and shrinking populations
  • New approaches to water supply management in under-populated regions
  • New approaches to flood risk reduction in aging societies
  • Use of remote sensing technology to monitor water resources and water quality in under-populated regions
  • Use of remote sensing technology and GIS for flood warning and evacuation

The overall objective is to promote research linking climate change and aging for better water management
