The untold story of water in climate adaptation – Part II: 15 countries speak

Source(s):  Global Water Partnership (GWP)

The Untold Story of Water in Climate Adaptation – Part II: 15 Countries Speak is based on an in-depth analysis of 15 countries, examining whether and how their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) build climate resilience through work on water issues. The research also looks at the countries’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) strategies to see how they depend on and harness the availability – in quantity and timing – and the quality of water. 

The report identifies how water resources management is providing an entry point to build cross-sectoral adaptative capacity, reduce atmospheric carbon, and enable transformative change to strengthen resilience in national economies, livelihoods, and natural ecosystems. A collaboration between GWP and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), the report will be launched at an event highlighting opportunities water management offers for building climate resilience, reducing disaster risk, and advancing sustainable development. 

The analysis includes comprehensive recommendations for four audiences: 

  • national policy makers, including focal points for the SDGs and the UNFCCC, authorities for the climate funds, and ministers of water, environment, planning, and finance; 

  • national stakeholders such as civil society and business; 

  • development partners, including bilateral donors, multilateral institutions, and the climate funds; and  

  • transboundary and regional organisations.
