ROOM

Room 5

DESCRIPTION

[OS-RP-39] 

Global and regional climate and hydrological models as well as vulnerability maps showing the likelihood of distribution of hotspots to be hit hard by climate change impact on water, livelihoods and nature show that the knowledge base for policy action is sufficient to start action in adaptation to climate change in the region. The session will provide a platform to share with the world the current flagship projects countries and organizations are already implementing in water, agriculture and territorial development planning. A question to be also debated is about other regions’ experience in planning and acting in the realm of uncertainties of Climate change impacts and what experiences related to institutional innovations could be learned (worldwide) on proofing the water, cities and agriculture sectors through climate change adaptation mainstreaming in climate policies.
