The paper reviews the existing tools methods and general literature which deal with the construction of climate change (CC) scenarios and with the assessment of impacts of these scenarios on water resources. It further examines the existing CC predictions specific to Morocco. The paper further describes the publicly available hydrometeorological time series data, which could be used to quantify the future CC scenarios for a river basin in Morocco (Oum er Rbia) and a smaller irrigation scheme within it (Tadla), located in the western part of the country. The data indicates that the impact of future CC on water resources at smaller scales such as smaller river basins, specific water resources and irrigation systems has to date not been properly addressed and, therefore, constitutes a niche for immediate research. This is, especially relevant in areas such as the Mediterranean region, which is predicted to be particularly affected by CC in the future. The preliminary trend analysis of available rainfall data suggests that the possible future CC impacts will decrease the precipitation in parts of the Atlas Mountains, which is the main source of water supply in western Morocco. The more recent data acquisition and the data from national sources in Morocco are necessary to further confirm/reject this hypothesis. The paper also discusses subsequent steps of the study of CC impacts on water resources in Oum er Rbia basin.

Though exceptional human longevity has captured the imagination for millennia, it has been only in the past fifteen years or so that some of the secrets to very long lives are finally giving way to scientific inquiry. Written by an international group of experts, this year's review first considers the methodological and design dilemmas faced in conducting centenarian research. It then offers guidance in locating literature and data sources for primary and secondary information on centenarians and the oldest old. This section includes a list of the world's oldest persons and discusses the difficulties in compiling such a list. The remainder of the review is divided in three sections-the biology and genetics of longevity, the behavioral and social predictors of longevity, and methodological issues in qualitative and anthropologic approaches and the study of the very oldest old, supercentenarians, or those who live to 110 years or more. Data is drawn from studies undertaken among populations in diverse parts of the world.
