New GWP Report: The Untold Story of Water in Climate Change Adaptation

On November 10th, 2018 at COP24 – The United Nations Climate Change Conference, the Global Water Partnership (GWP) launched a report entitled “Preparing to Adapt: The Untold Story of Water in Climate Change Adaptation.”

The new GWP report provides insights from over 80 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) on national development plans and frameworks. Speaking about the new report, GWP’s Executive Secretary, Dr. Monika Weber-Fahr said “Fewer than 60% of those countries analysed have prioritised institution building in water. Less than a third - 26% - embrace integrated water resources management as an approach. There are reasons for concern that with poor or inadequate management approaches, forging ahead with major infrastructure investments can have counterproductive results.”
