Perspective document written as input into the 5th World Water Forum, in which an attempt is made to lay out IRC’s understanding of climate change impacts in the sector, and implications for adaptation measures. Rather than considering these impacts in isolation, the paper considers climate change as one of many important and uncertain external factors that can have a profound direct or indirect effect on WASH services delivery. It discusses whether improved WASH governance can play a role in dealing with these uncertainties enhance in climate change adaptation efforts.
