Message from Guest Speaker Karin Lexén.

“The role of sustainable water management in climate action and securing healthy ecosystems”

 

Ensuring water security—sustainable, resilient water resources and services – is vital to reduce the effects of climate change to allow communities, nature and economies to thrive. 

 

However currently, one fifth of the world’s river basins are experiencing rapid changes in the area covered by surface waters, which indicates a growth in flooding, new reservoirs, and the drying up of water bodies. 

 

Climate change is primarily a water crisis. We feel its impacts through worsening floods, rising sea levels, shrinking ice fields, wildfires and droughts. However, Sustainable water management is central to building the resilience of societies and ecosystems and to reducing carbon emissions.

Water is also at the heart of adaptation to climate change, serving as the crucial link between the climate system, human society and the environment. Without proper water governance, there is likely to be increased competition for water between sectors and an escalation of water crises of various kinds, triggering emergencies in a range of water-dependent sectors. 

Everyone has a role to play – actions at the individual and household levels are vital. The private sector as well as the finance sector have a very important and even decisive role to play. Examples and recommendations will be presented and discussed”
