Abstract: "Water storage has a vital role to play in improving global food security and building for resilience for adaptation to climate change. A wide range of storage options are available, each with strengths and weaknesses. Because of the uncertainty associated with climate change, planners need to focus on flexibility in storage systems and give careful consideration to the effectiveness and suitability of different storage types."
