Water scarcity, exacerbated by climate change, could cost some regions up to 6% of their gdp, spur migration, and spark conflict the negative impacts of climate change on water could be neutralized with better policy decisions, with some regions standing to improve their growth rates by up to 6% with. Water cycle (aka: hydrologic cycle) a model used to illustrate the movement and the phase changes of water at and near earth's surface http it flows into the water beneath the earth's surface called subsurface water sub = under precipitation that flows over the earth's surface (1/3 of precipitation. With climate change, the water cycle is expected to undergo significant change for example, a warmer climate causes more water to evaporate from both land and oceans in turn, a warmer atmosphere can hold more water—roughly four percent more water for every 1ºf rise in temperature.
