WEBINAR: Ending Conflicts Over Water: Solutions to Water and Security Challenges

September 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Nature plays a fundamental role in ensuring that the world’s 7.6 billion people have enough water to drink, grow food and maintain sanitary conditions. Yet we are facing a global water crisis, with 1 out of 3 people living without safe drinking water. By 2050, up to 5.7 billion people could be facing some level of water scarcity, which will inevitably have an adverse impact on the enjoyment of human rights.

This session explores the various dimensions of how nature-based solutions can build long-term water security and why this matters over the next 30 years to address and manage future shocks.

The session provides examples and best practices from around the world in integrating nature into national water management plans, and shows how businesses are integrating nature-based solutions into their water stewardship plans.

Program will be broadcast on this page.
