Why the Global Climate Challenge is a Global Water Challenge

Global Public Policy Network on Water Management publishes Water World: Why the Global Climate Challenge is a Global Water Challenge
The Global Public Policy Network on Water Management (GPPN) has launched a report, Water World: Why the Global Climate Challenge is a Global Water Challenge, to make the case for water as a critical consideration for climate change. GPPN is a joint initiative of Stakeholder Forum and Stockholm International Water Institute, working with global stakeholders to identify priorities for the international water agenda, and communicate those priorities to decision-makers. This report focuses on six themes that address water as a cross-cutting consideration in response to climate change: water and livelihoods, water and land, water and transboundary resource management, water and water and energy, and water and gender.
