Canada's role grows amid looming world water shortages in some places, more flooding in others
Date:2/27/2011

S. households in 1998 alone save an estimated 166,000 cubic meters of water daily and more than $33.6 million per year.

  • Anna Warwick Sears of the Okanagan Basin Water Board in British Columbia, where water supply worries are rising due to rapid population growth.

    "Climate change requires new ways of thinking and co-operation between water users," she says.

    "Even in one of the driest regions of Canada, our water systems were built under a paradigm of unlimited supply." Ms Sears will address how her region is preparing to cope with the coming 'known unknowns' of climate impacts on water.
