Climate and Water webinar series
Starting in February, the UNDP-SIWI Water Governance Facility, Global Water Partnership, Alliance for Global Water Adaptation, and Cap-Net will deliver a 3-part series on water and climate.
The webinars will explore the role water should have in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.
18 February: Interactions between water and different sectors. The first webinar we will discuss the importance of ensuring that water interactions are considered in their NDCs, as countries adjust development paths as a result of Covid-19 impact on country finances, intersectoral linkages, observations on differences between first and enhanced NDCs. It will introduce a practical tool for identifying climate and water inter-linkages.
25 February: From Commitments to Implementation. In the second webinar the conversation aims to share experiences in preparing documents that include climate change related activities, as well as their lessons from addressing commitments found in the first round of NDC’s.
4 March: Climate Finance – Exploring Options for Funding Water & Climate. The third webinar aims to build on the learnings of the first webinar that introduced the three main global climate finance mechanisms and their modalities. In this session the emphasis will be on the practicalities of securing finance, obtaining accreditation, and building good investment cases by using examples from successful entities.
