Climate change is water change

Policy Brief Published: November 2016

Summary

The coming years, including the stocktaking in 2018, will be an important time to underpin water’s key role to achieve the ambitions set out in the Paris Climate Agreement. For most Parties, water will be one of the key adaptation challenges of climate change. As the national plans (NDCs) currently do not suffice to meet the ambitions agreed upon in the Paris Agreement, the coming years will be important to build trust among parties and ensure that this gap is closed.
