Aligning Agendas: Advancing Adaptation through Country Participation in the UN Water Conference
Climate change impacts on water resources are one of the most significant challenges to which countries, communities, economies, and ecosystems must adapt. That’s a major reason why the United Nations General Assembly is organizing the first high-level Global Water Conference since 1977, on March 22-23, 2023. As the conference vision statement notes,
“We need to rapidly find a new balance to ensure sustainable development of water resources – water for people, economy and nature – and respect the planetary boundaries whilst investing in adaptation for resilient communities, economies and ecosystems.”
In preparation for the Global Water Conference, please join the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA), the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the World Resources Institute (WRI) on Monday, February 13 for an online event that will bring together countries, implementing partners and practitioners to learn more about the conference, share approaches and exchange knowledge on water’s vital role in adapting to climate change and building resilience.
