Managing Water for Green Growth

Posted: 2010-11-29

The UN climate negotiations in Cancún, Mexico, will be an opportunity to take a sober look at the state of the world’s climate and our collective capacity to respond to the changes which are already visible: more extreme weather events, floods, droughts, glacier melting, polar ice caps shrinking, and sea levels rising, GWP Executive Secretary Dr Ania Grobicki writes in a publication issued for the COP16 delegates (click on link at right).

Arguing that better water resources management is at the heart of climate change adaptation, Dr. Grobicki also says, “water is the connecting thread across economic sectors which can nurture and support green growth or it can be the enemy which wipes out economic gains when disaster strikes. Building water security contributes to human security, and the security of nations.”
