Description

Water crises generate political and social instability and threaten the security of populations. They demonstrate that water management is a key factor in building resilient societies and economies. In a context of climate change defined by shortages, floods and droughts, the central question remains how to improve access to water for all as well as international cooperation around this strategic resource. In preparation for the 9th World Water Forum, this session will present cooperation initiatives around water contributing to peace and development. It will highlight hydro-diplomacy with examples of solutions in transboundary basins.
