Climate is Water

    Nelson Mandela Auditorium, Climate Generations Areas, Le Bourget – Paris (France)
    To elevate water in the climate debate at the political level during this important event and for years to come, the World Water Council, together with over a dozen members of the international water community, is launching an initiative to communicate with a single voice that our future relies on effectively addressing the relationship between water and climate: #ClimateIsWater. WWC calls its members to learn more about the initiative and to join by sharing your events and actions.

    Climate and Water converge on 2 December

    This initiative will organize a “Water Day” at the Le Bourget site in order to increase the visibility for waterand create greater political awareness for how water can provide solutions for some of the challenges that climate change poses. This initiative targets the general public, as well as non-state actors and decision makers through conferences, events, and a special Press event. The main events will be held in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium in the civil society zone from 11:00-14:30. Events taking place in the civil society area are linked with the “Resilience Day” of the official CoP21 program, during which water will be discussed in the morning with high-level government officials through the presentation of four dedicated commitments by river basin organizations, cities, youth, and the business community on water and climate change as part of the Lima to Paris Action Agenda.
