By mid-century, annual average river run-off and water availability are projected to increase by
10-40% at high latitudes and in some wet tropical areas, and decrease by 10-30% over some dry regions at mid-latitudes and in the dry tropics, some of which are presently water stressed areas.
Millions of people are projected to be flooded every year due to sea level rise by the 2080s.
Sustainable development can reduce vulnerability to climate change by increasing resilience.
