The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Raising Ambitions on the Road to COP25

In conjunction with the 50th Session of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Bodies (SB50), the World Water Council will be hosting a one-day workshop to help raise awareness on the importance of water in successful implementation of the Paris Agreement. Co-organized by the #ClimateIsWater Initiative and other key partners, this high level event will aim to build on the outcomes of COP24 and enhance climate ambition —highlighting the key role of water in mitigation and adaptation — as we turn our attention to COP25 later this year.

3rd International Conference on Water & Climate

Following the success of the 2nd International Conference on Water and Climate, the World Water Council, with the support of the CoP22 Chair as represented by the State Secretariat for Water of the Kingdom of Morocco, and with the collaboration of other international partners, is pleased to announce the organization of the third edition of the event on 2-3 October in Marseille, France.

The central objective of the meeting is to mobilize and encourage a range of political, institutional, technical, and scientific stakeholders to work together so that water remains an important element of climate discussions within the UNFCCC’s 24th Conference of the Parties in December of 2018.
