Video: The Role of Water in Adaptation and Mitigation of Climate Change (IISD ENB+)

UN Water has developed a set of guiding principles on water and climate change for experts and decision makers to consider when preparing development plans and related investments.

These principles formed the basis for two side events at UNFCCC COP21 in November 2015 and COP22 in November 2016. These events brought together representatives from national and local government with the private sector, to discuss the role of water in climate change adaptation and mitigation, as well as possible actions on the ground. The second part of the video points to the importance of data and of data flowing two directions.
