A SUMMARY OF: UNVEILING WATER SECURITY IN BRAZIL - CURRENT CHALLENGES AND FUTURE PERSPECTIVES
SE02.D - Recursos hídricos em escala nacional e continental
Water crises have risen over the past decade. In the Brazilian context, extreme events have been intensified over the country undermining water systems in regions that already face water shortages. Although we have studies focused on different regions of Brazil, an overview of the entire country will contribute to developing a national action plan for mitigating water inequalities. Therefore, we reviewed and analyzed water security in Brazil, presenting a diagnosis focused on the peculiarities of each geographic region and hydrographic area. One of the biggest threats is the slow-paced steps towards having a robust policy for strengthening national water security. As shown here, water security depends on several variables such as availability, quality, and external factors such as climate forcing and anthropogenic pressure. Therefore, water governance needs to integrate human needs with the ecosystem functioning considering climate uncertainties to move towards better water resources planning. Here we presented a summary of the article entitled ?Unveiling Water Security in Brazil: Current Challenges and Future Perspectives? recently published in the Hydrological Sciences Journal.
