GWP's newest Perspectives Paper is called "Climate insurance and water-related disaster risk management – Unlikely partners in promoting development?" It is a contribution to the discussion on insurance, risk transfer and sharing mechanisms in offsetting economic impacts around extreme events.
Across India, the magnitude and intensity of extreme weather events like drought and floods is increasing. Farmers in South India, who are mostly dependent on rain fed agriculture, struggle. Our latest case study looks at the situation in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
GWP has leveraged its stakeholder network to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) reporting process in 30 countries. The results will form part of the SDG 6 baseline data to be included in UN-Water’s SDG 6 Synthesis Report 2018 on water and sanitation.
