Climate change is one of a few major factors that ensure the country will continue to struggle to supply its cities and industries and fields with enough water, particularly in the North, as well as face more frequent and longer droughts. The country has shown a stunningly agile disaster response system, but its system for disaster prevention and management is far less developed. The road to greater drought management and sustainable water supplies is demand management. How to achieve this in a historically hydraulic-engineering society is explored through the case study of Guiyang Municipality in Guizhou Province.

A risk governance deficit is a failure in the identification, framing, assessment, management and communication of a risk issue or of how it is being addressed. As such, it can also be understood as a risk governance challenge. Governance deficits are common. They may be found throughout the risk handling process, and limit its effectiveness. They are actual and potential shortcomings and can be remedied or mitigated. The list of risk governance deficits and case studies were developed following a series of expert workshops held in Zurich and Geneva (November 2007, June 2008, November 2008 and June 2009). Participants comprised an international group of experts in risk assessment and management from government, academia, private industry and international organisations.
