The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

#ClimateIsWater Flyer for COP23 & Beyond

WATERDAY
The #ClimateIsWater initiative has released an updated set of key messages highlighting the importance of water in climate policy dialogue. The document, now available online, is meant to help inform activities at COP23 in Bonn that run from 6-17 November. It focuses on six key ideas:
  • Water connects sectors – from energy and forests to agriculture and tourism, water has a critical role to play in both mitigation and adaptation.
  • Climate change impacts water resources first and foremost.
  • Women's lives are the most impacted when facing the adverse effects of climate change, but they are also crucial agents of change.
  • Food security, improved nutrition and health will only be achievable if there is water security.
  • Sustainable urban water management enables climate resilience in cities.
  • Water-wise climate financing is a good investment for all.
