Global Water Forum Article on DRR, Climate Change, and Water

A group of AGWA members has written an article published by Global Water Forum entitled "Mastering disaster in a changing climate: Reducing disaster risk through resilient water management." This article was written to help facilitate constructive dialogue at COP24 around the importance of water in disaster risk reduction (DRR) policies and actions.
