Climate change has emerged as one of the most urgent environmental issues for our planet. Climate change would cause significant impact on water resources, which is one of the most important economic sectors. This presentation demonstrates how application of Integrated Water Resource Management can improve water managers' ability to adapt to climate change by extracting lessons from a few case studies from Canada that include Tobacco Creek Watershed, Manitoba; Grand River Watershed, Ontario; and Yamaska Watershed, Quebec.
