ABSTRACT

Families are exposed to poor water quality because of climate change, which has a negative influence on children's chances of survival and serious health concerns. The main purpose of the research was to look into the consequences of climate change on Nigeria's Imo state's drinkable water sources. This research relied heavily on secondary data. The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) provided the necessary rainfall data for this investigation. The Owerri synoptic station in Nigeria was used by the Nigerian Meteorological Department from 1999 to 2019 to collect monthly rainfall and air temperature (minimum and maximum) data (table 2). Data for the sources of water in Imo State was obtained from published article these articles used questionnaire and survey methods in adopting data on the drinking water sources in Imo State. Results showed that Borehole water is the most frequent source of potable water in Imo State. Water conservation and management should be the emphasis of climate change mitigation efforts in Imo State and any nation because climate change directly influences water resources. Imo State's water supplies have been shown to be affected by climate change, according to this research, which found variations in rainfall patterns across the state during the study period. This has implications for both the quality and quantity of water available in Imo State.
