Prospects for agricultural water management

Changing rainfall patterns and runoff due to climate change indicate that future summer river flows are likely to decrease substantially, by as much as 50 percent in Ukraine. It is expected that the country will suffer increased water stress over the 21st Century as severe droughts, classified today as one in 100 year events, are projected to become twice as likely by 2070. The sectors that are most vulnerable to these changes are agriculture in the south and industry and households in the south and southeast. In the south and southeast, surface water quality will deteriorate (Climate Adaptation, 2015).
