Even water rich Great Lakes residents must adapt to climate change

According to a new report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development,  40 percent of the world’s population will live under severe water stress by 2050.  While the Great Lakes region is water rich, the report suggest that even water wealthy areas should work toward adaptive policies to secure freshwater’s future.  Kathleen Bresnahan Dominique is an environmental economist at the OECD and author of  the publication “Water and Climate Change Adaptation: Policies to Navigate Uncharted Waters.”  She speaks with Current State’s Emanuele Berry about how climate change can also be described as water change.
