The Pivotal Role of Water in Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

IISD Reporting Services has come out with a great video produced by Tasha Goldberg and filmed/edited by Nemo Allen. The video, entitled "The Pivotal Role of Water in Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation," was created as an output of COP21 in Paris.

On Monday, 7 December 2015, UN Water hosted a panel discussion on the Pivotal role of water in climate change adaptation and mitigation. The event brought together representatives from national and local government with private sector, to discuss the impacts of climate change on water. Panelists underscored that mitigation and adaptation actions may not be mutually exclusive, identifying the need for collaboration and increased investment and further expressed hope for the Paris outcomes.
