Behavioural Adaptive Measures

Conserving water by a changing human behaviour is linked to all categories of adaptive measures that require human action or a response. This category includes diverse and sundry actions, ranging from decisions by individuals to take showers rather than baths to changes in diet, say from meat to crops, which can reduce agricultural water loss, as, in general, less water is used when eating food lower on the food chain. Other simple behavioural adjustments include switching to crops with low water needs or adopting plants in landscaping designs that can save water ("xeriscaping').
