Unpacking freshwater’s role: Joint climate action through integrated approaches
To limit global warming to 1.5°C, it is necessary that actions are not only carbon smart but also water wise. Freshwater must therefore be mainstreamed into climate mitigation efforts, including governance processes that support mitigation pathways.
What is the role of freshwater in climate change mitigation? This spring Swedish Water House will host a webinar series diving into the chapters of the recently launched report “The essential drop to reach Net-Zero: Unpacking Freshwater’s Role in Climate Change Mitigation”.
In this final webinar of the series, we will present findings from the chapter “Achieving climate mitigation through integrated and cross-sectoral approaches”. In what ways are integrated approaches, that account for the interconnections between freshwater and climate mitigation, necessary to achieve water-wise climate mitigation?
