Urbanisation and climate change are directly linked to each other. This is because urbanisation accelerates human activities that result in emission of greenhouse gases which are a major cause of climate change. Both climate change and urbanisation have catastrophic impacts on natural resources, especially water resources; whereby affecting the management of the same. The impacts of climate change and urbanisation on water availability and water quality affect many sectors, including energy production, infrastructure, human health, agriculture, and ecosystems. The impacts of these two phenomena on water resources management are also similar; and or linked to each other.
