Abstract

With the population growth and social-economic development, the contradictions between water supply and water demand are rapidly increasing in the world, coupled with the impact of climate change and urbanization. Thus, future water resources shortage will become more severe due to the climate change and urban development, which will result in the conflicts among industrial, domestic and ecological users. In addition, the insufficient water supply can restrict the economic development in the country as well as city. Therefore, the risk from climate change and urbanization must be reduced using all available knowledge. Because the impacts from those risk are prevalent all over the world, many experts from many countries and various fields should work together to find a smart solution.
