Global and climate change
Natural resources, including water, are strongly affected by climate change. However, the water community has solutions both to adapt to climate change and to mitigate this phenomenon. The French Water Partnership is conducting several activities on the subject.
Our working group on water and climate
The FWP is coordinating a multi-stakeholder working group on water and climate change.
This working group is chaired by Jean-Luc Redaud, FWP, Académie de l’eau and 4D.
The main objectives of this working group are to:
Contribute to a better integration of water issues in international climate negotiations and policies;
Promote the operational implementation of international commitments in the field of water and climate at European, national and local level;
Promote the french expertise and solutions in the fight against climate change;
Strengthen awareness, knowledge and capacity on water and climate of all stakeholders at all levels.
