Adoption of common climate change agenda in Latin America

Posted: 2011-12-30

Held in Buenos Aires in November, the 12th Conference of Ibero-American Water Directors (CODIA) confirmed the 11 targets and the key political messages initially proposed as part of the Americas' preparatory process for the 6th World Water Forum.

Representatives of the 18 Latin American countries that attended the Conference committed themselves to pushing for the endorsement of these targets during the ministerial process at the World Water Forum to be held in Marseille in March 2012. GWP Central and South America together played an active role in the preparatory process for the Forum – coordinating the thematic group on Good Governance for IWRM and being involved in the Climate Change group. In this way, GWP made a substantial contribution to the formulation of the 11 targets that set a common framework for integrated water management in Latin America.
