In November, OOSKAnews attended and reported on the UN Climate Change Conference (COP22), convened by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and hosted by the Kingdom of Morocco in the city of Marrakesh. OOSKAnews met with a number of "water community" participants and attendees in the context of efforts to promote the water agenda in the global climate discussion. The resulting podcasts include interviews with two of AGWA's own: Karin Lexén of SIWI and AGWA's Coordinator John Matthews.
