The issue on screening for climate change adaptation is addressed. A screening approach is developed for assessing climatechange impacts on water sector and integrating adaptation for water resource projects, and three phases for screening climate changeadaptation are introduced that include the semi-quantitative & quantitative analysis, and the evaluation of different adaptation optionson the water resources affected by climate change in China. According to different climatic regions facing different problems on waterresource, four representative regions in China are chosen in the project; after setting up different objectives, this paper demonstrates thecomprehensive research on climate change adaptation, and proposes new ideas, framework and methodologies on screening for climatechange impacts and adaptation. This research provides the effective framework and methodology for the planning and risk managementof the impacts of future climate change on water resource.
