Falkenmark Symposium - Achieving SDG in Africa: scaling green-blue revolution

Convenor(s):
SIWI Swedish Water House; Stockholm Environment Institute and Stockholm Resilience Centre

Last year, the distinguished Malin Falkenmark Symposium focused in 2016 on green water management as a prerequisite to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal on Eradication of Hunger (SDG 2) for savannah countries in Africa. The outcome of the Symposium, co-convened by Stockholm International Water Institute, Stockholm Resilience Centre and Stockholm Environment Institute, were formulated in a Call for an African Water Revolution, which has gained endorsements since. Water harvesting in Africa and delivery on the hunger goal by stimulating an African water revolution. The science is clear, but we need to prompt, the policy making and funding bodies that are influencing the African semi-arid context. The 2017 panel discussion will focus on advancing the solutions for the Call and discuss a road map for its realisation.
