Water: scarcity and flooding

Climate change increases the likelihood of hydrological extremes, with both more prolonged droughts and intense rainfall. Flanders is very vulnerable to this climate evolution because of its high population density, high water consumption, high degree of urbanization and strong drainage. We need to adapt our water management to better arm ourselves against the risks. The past few summers have made the sense of urgency in this area clear.
