Parties to the UNFCCC have identified their climate priorities and commitments over the last few years, sharing ambitious pledges in the form of NDCs and NAPs. This session will highlight some of the ways that adaptation action is enhanced and accelerated by taking an integrated and water-centric approach to capacity building, stakeholder engagement, and project implementation.

This event is co-convened by the Water and Climate Coalition (WCC), UNEP Freshwater Unit, African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) and Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA).
