Water and Climate – From Dialogue to Action


Holland Climate House, Hall C7, Bella Center, UN Climate Change Conference, Copenhagen
Water is the primary medium through which climate change will manifest itself on livelihoods, economies and ecosystems. In recent years a global dialogue among water professionals and politicians has resulted in a set of guiding principles laid down in statements from Nairobi, Stockholm, UN Water and Cairo. These messages are foremost in guiding the water community, but have also been forwarded to the climate community assembled at the COP-15. The side event will present and discuss the principles, including follow-up actions on climate information, planning, building with nature and capacity development.
