DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-86] Climate Change will have an important role in the overall sustainable development agenda in the year to come, and in particular SDG13. Water is a key element in order to address issues of adaptation and mitigation of climate change impacts. There are already important initiatives related to Water and Climate as a result of the COP process (Climate Adaptation Pacts, #ClimateIsWater initiative, etc.). This session will analyze the exiting initiatives, and discuss modalities with which such initiatives should be conducted, in particular how to make sure that there is a cohesive cross-sectoral approach to water and climate issues.
