There is a vast amount of fresh water on the planet, but it is not evenly distributed in space and time. In many areas short term abundance of water causes floods during parts of the year, while in other parts droughts may occur at the same location. Lack of water in other areas may result in desertification. Climate change is exacerbating the frequency, magnitude and geographical expanse of such events. In some cases, floods and droughts are experienced in the same area, due to increasing variability of hydro-climate conditions as result of the climate change impacts.
