23nov_09_0320 November 2009: The International Water Management Institute (IWMI), a member of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), has published a water policy brief on "Flexible Water Storage Options and Adaptation to Climate Change."

The report highlights a spectrum of water storage options, including groundwater, soil moisture, tanks, ponds and reservoirs. It outlines the risks from climate change facing each of these options and calls for developing flexible and complementary water storage systems. The report notes that water storage is only one of many components in adapting agriculture to climate change. [The Policy Brief] [IWMI Website]
