Forthcoming water study on climate mitigation measures
Work to evaluate the water requirements for implementing various climate mitigation measures is underway. The final study, by UN-Water in partnership with the International Universities Climate Alliance, is planned for the 2024 Bonn Climate Conference in June 2024.
The UN Water Expert Group on Water and Climate Change is undertaking a study on the water requirements of climate mitigation measures, in partnership with the International Universities Climate Alliance (IUCA). This follows the Technical Workshop on Water and Climate Change Mitigation, held in Bonn on 13 June 2023, which set out to identify what is known and not known about the dependency of Paris Agreement targets on the sustainable management of water resources.
The study is being led by United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and World Meteorological Organization (WMO) as the co-coordinators of the Expert Group, and based on the terms of reference.
A progress report of the study will be presented at the 28th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 28) that will convene from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The final report will be used to prepare a UN Water Analytical Brief on this topic to be available for the 2024 Bonn Climate Conference in June 2024.
