DESCRIPTION

[PP-LRA-10]

Civil unrest, mass migration and insurgency resulting from water crises reflect the need for more hydro-diplomacy. Politics of scale allow these issues, which transcend all levels of governance, to be tackled. Thus, there is a growing need for intra and inter cooperation. This discussion calls for more shared knowledge and practices on water resources, an increase in consensuses around water and its related aspects.   

Panelists:

  • Mr. Barjas Negri, Mayor of Piracicaba, Brazil
  • Mr. Arthur Vigilio, Mayor of Manaus, Brazil
  • Ms. Marta Subirà i Roca, Secretary of Environment and Sustainability of the Government of Catalonia , Spain
