Effective country-driven climate change adaptation reflects the importance of water management in reducing vulnerability and building climate resilience.
A COP23 event on November 9 will focus on the challenge of identifying scalable natural solutions to adapt to climate change, and how to raise the necessary financial and technical capital for natural infrastructure adaptation solutions.
Over 90% of I/NDCs refer to water management as a key response to climate change impacts. Climate resilience is strengthened through healthy ecosystem services that provide natural pathways to adaptation. Adapting to climate change relies on well-functioning river basins that provide key economic and environmental services for freshwater and marine ecosystems.
Many nature based solutions are focussed at project intervention level, yet the climate change impacts on hydrology will be across river basins and regions, impacting agriculture, human health, and ecosystems. Panellists will respond to framing presentations followed by active discussion with the audience.
