The Pace of Human-Induced Change in Large Rivers: Stresses, Resilience, and Vulnerability to Extreme Events

Jim Best, Stephen E. Darby

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

The world’s great rivers are threatened by a range of anthropogenic stresses—of which climate change is just one—that decrease resilience and increase vulnerability to extreme events. Future governance must recognize both the rate of change associated with these stressors and the potential for extreme events to transgress sustainability thresholds.
