C limate change impacts the water cycle and everything else that depends on water. But often the climate conversations exclude the importance of water. Well-integrated National frameworks for Climate Change Management can help bridge the climate and water conversation. Connecting water and climate needs to be a top priority at COP27 and COP 28 and at the UN Water Conference 2023.

The mainstreaming of water adaptation is necessary to accelerate a system-wide coherence on water across multiple agendas. Many adaptation practices and approaches exist already, but as IPCC observes, the effort is fragmented and inadequate. At the same time, many policy actors and platforms are available to drive a transformative change, such as the COPs and the upcoming UN Water 2023 Conference in New York.

The Water Adaptation Community is working to promote mainstreaming of water adaptation and to accelerate understanding and action in policy and in practice.

This series of videos is a call to action to mainstream water climate adaptation at a series of international events such COP27, the UN 2023 Water Conference and COP28.
