News // Water sector thirsty for change at Climate COP
Oct 26 2021
The Water Pavilion is the result of an unprecedented collaboration among over 30 organizations, governments and companies in the water space. The aim is to deliver cutting edge, science-based advice to climate decision-makers. Countries can also learn more about the central role that water plays in the climate crisis and the need for water to be at the very centre of climate solutions for mitigation and adaptation.
Torgny Holmgren, Executive Director of the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), which leads the Water Pavilion explains:
“The climate crisis is primarily a water crisis. To a large extent, we experience global warming in the form of too much or too little water, as floods or droughts. But few countries are aware of how much they can gain from focusing more on water in their climate action, and that is what we want to change with the first-ever Water Pavilion.”
