  • Relative changes in annual runoff (in %) for the period 2090-2099, relative to 1980-1999. By 2050 annual average river runoff and water availability are projected to increase by 10- 40% at high latitudes and decrease by 10-30% over some dry regions at mid-latitudes and in the dry tropics; Drought-affected areas will likely increase in extent; Heavy precipitation events, which are very likely to increase in frequency, will augment flood risk. In the course of the century, water supplies stored in glaciers and snow cover are projected to decline.
