Policy Group's New Briefing Document: Water a success factor for implementing the Paris Agreement
07/03/17 Filed in: Policy Brief
The AGWA policy group, coordinated by SIWI, has released a new policy brief
outlining successful steps towards implementation of the Paris Agreement.
One of the keys to fulfill the goals set in the Paris Agreement will be wise water management. Water was on the agenda at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakesh (COP22), and its key role in strengthening resilience to climate change cannot be overstated. The role of water holds great potential for synergies in adaptation and mitigation, as illustrated in the priorities outlined in the national climate plans. In this policy brief, developed by members of the AGWA policy group, recommendations on how water can inform the implementation of the Paris Agreement, illustrated through its role in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are presented.
