On this page, we present upcoming events that may be of interest to our Partners or anyone interested in water-related activities. Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) hosts and or participates in the events (indicated). However, we sometimes list external events that are of general interest.
In 2021, GWP and Wuhan International Water Law Academy are co-organising an interactive online series called the "Transboundary freshwater security governance train". The series of online engagements sessions will be conducted in an approach of a ‘train’ stopping at various locations in the world, with focus on topics related to transboundary freshwater security from different parts of the world. At each of the stops, a different topic from the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for Governance for Transboundary Freshwater Security will be explored. The first session is on transboundary water agreements, and it takes place on 19 January, stopping in Africa, Europe and Asia.
The Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021 takes place online on 25-26 January. It is a global conference that promises to accelerate, innovate, and scale up the world’s efforts in adapting to the inevitable effects of climate change. During the event, the finalists and winners of the Water ChangeMaker Awards will be featured and announced in two different sessions.
World Wetlands Day is celebrated on 2 February every year to raise global awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet. The 2021 theme shines a spotlight on wetlands as a source of freshwater and encourages actions to restore them and stop their loss.
The nineteenth session of the Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC 19) to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) will be organised online from 15 to 19 March. GWP will be represented at the event.
In March 2021, the Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) will hold a Caribbean Science Symposium on Water; the first of its kind for the region. Its main theme will be “Building Resilience in the Regional Water Sector to Address Climatological and Hydrological Risks and Threats.”
