Climate action pathway: Water

Source(s):  United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

This summary outlines concrete actions for 2020, 2030 and 2050 for managing water, with respect to policies, finance and investment, technology and innovation, business and services and civil society towards fully implementing the Paris Agreement.

Water infrastructure will be designed and built to be both robust and flexible across a range of possible climate futures, providing reliable service and improved performance over time. Water resources management will be integrated into climate planning at all levels (including transboundary), and across sectors to ensure that water is available in adequate quantity and quality at the time it is needed for both people and ecosystems.

This will be accomplished by instituting climate-resilient water governance, institutions, basin organizations, and regulatory and legal frameworks that ensure full inclusion of all stakeholders, especially disadvantaged and underrepresented groups, such as ethnic minorities, indigenous peoples and other vulnerable groups.

The private sector contributes by analyzing and sharing water-related risks, measuring and reporting water use data, funding innovation, and taking steps to reduce impacts on water in operations and throughout the value chain.
