Linking Climate Information, Governance, and Justice for a Resilient Future

Climate resilience is a unique tango of three that requires information, governance, and justice to work in harmony. The trifecta metaphor used here is to indicate the intricacy required to ensure that all populations are prepared for, can respond to, and recover from extreme climate and weather-related events. Sharing the right information is empowering to all. When information is disseminated in suitable formats to policy makers, water professionals, scientists, media, and communities, the returns can be witnessed in science-informed decision-making, long-term planning, and an enhanced engagement of communities in water management toward a more resilient and equitable future. Join experts in this tango, as they discuss what climate services, participatory governance, and a just transition mean for water management in a constantly changing world.
