SIWI at COP22 – High Level Panel: Water, a connector for successful NDC implementation

Water is a connector, not a sector, and it provides solutions. The water community offers holistic expertise that can support strategies to tackle climate change and facilitate adaptation. However, to meet the climate challenge we must strengthen multi-stakeholder collaboration across all sectors. Water connects policy areas, economic sectors, and societies and is therefore a tool for cooperation and for building trust. 

Event Objective:
We will advance the dialogue across sectors and actors on the role of water resilience in achieving NDC implementation and how to enhance climate-resilient investment in water infrastructure, while highlighting the role of non-state actors. We will also showcase opportunities and challenges for implementation of national climate plans and accessing climate finance.
