“…As natural stream methane emissions are equivalent to ~30% of their present-day emissions—while challenging—it is at least possible that current emissions could be reduced by some 70% through management strategies aimed at eliminating the export of excess fine sediment to streams from agricultural catchments. Given the forecasts for more frequent rainfall extremes and concomitant elevated soil erosion and sediment loss rates, these issues likely mean such strategies need to include major structural land cover change to reduce off-site impacts of agriculture moving forward 25 , 26 . Furthermore, given that intensive agriculture is a global issue 29 , methane emissions from streams and rivers (2.6 Tg CH 4 per year 2 ) around the world could be reduced if such effective management is widespread.…”

“…Projections suggest that our capacity to mitigate the off-site consequences of agriculture will be even more challenged under future climates. This is due to even higher elevated loss of sediment and nutrients driven by extreme rainfall events that will require significant land cover change (e.g., swapping crops for trees) to mitigate such externalities 25 , 26 .…”

“…Besides the COVID-19 pandemic, climatic extremes such as floods and droughts can degrade water quality and cause severe water pollution incidents because of limited prediction skills 5 , resulting in the failure or misoperation of water-engineered systems 6 and the absence of a timely water govenance policy 7 . These climatic extremes can also affect the mental health of the public directly and indirectly 8 .…”
