Abstract

Among the Social Consequences of Climate change, those affect and the hydrological cycle and water resources are expected to be serious. The analysis of the likely impacts of the Climate change for the Albanian coast reveals that drought, the. e. the prolongation of the low during dry periods - summer precipitation seasons, may be the most important directly consequence which, in turn, may lead to a cascade of secondary potentially harmful impacts, such as adequate quality drinking shortage of water. Decrease in the flow of surface waters, decrease in the recharge of aquifers, salt water intrusion due to sea level rise may cause coastal increased salinity in aquifers. This could create public health risks and increase the costs of water treatment and upset the ecology of the coastal area. In this study the present conditions as well as likely impacts as regards the hydrological and water resources are characteristics presented shortly.
