DESCRIPTION

[OS-RP-03]

This session will debate successful experiences addressing the challenges and effects of climate change on freshwater systems and the services they provide, encouraging the discussion with the general public to share new solutions and proposals. It will you answer questions such as: How can the countries build resilience to climate change? Which factors play a key role in increasing resilience in a context of adaptation? Water infrastructure, designed specifically for this purpose? Governance, to consider the multi-sectoral needs and multi-level stakeholders in the public policies? Increased interlinkage among the scientific and political fields? Legal frameworks, to prevent land use change aiming to sustainability?
