DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-06]

At UNFCCC COP21 (Paris) and COP22 (Marrakech), fresh water was recognized as a full priority of the Global Climate Action Agenda: 359 organizations in 94 Countries have signed the Paris Pact for water resources adaptation in basins and commit themselves to act quickly. They identified key issues for action from capacity building, stakeholder involvement, risk prevention, demand control to ecosystems services solutions…all are non-regret measures successfully implemented in different regions. This session will mobilize the Paris Pact signatories and organizations sharing the same approaches to show their initiatives and exchange best practices to facilitate their adoption by different actors and to mobilize energies to react quickly.
