Water Resources (In-)Security and Conflict – Exploring Inter-Linkages
The session starts with a keynote outlining different interlinkages between water security and conflict. Then, participants identify and map inter-linkages – in thematic discussion groups – through specific examples. The discussion is structured along a set of guiding questions that structure the briefing note to be prepared as an outcome.
Addressing conflict risks in climate adaptation and mitigation efforts
This event addresses how water-related climate adaptation and mitigation policies are linked with security and conflict risks. In an interactive session it discusses how policy makers could bolster synergies in implementing security, adaptation and development policies. Recent analysis on water and security risks at substate level will be presented.
Water security in fragile contexts
Untangling water insecurity’s role in contributing to political, social and environmental fragility is difficult, yet it is becoming a fundamental question for water policy given the scale of the fragility challenge. This session will explore ways in which water management and investments can promote stability and an escape from fragility
Watershed: Motivating value and values for water
How do people perceive the value of water, and what inspires them to be better consumers and stewards? What are the shared values necessary for change? These are questions that will be explored during the session, "Watershed: Motivating Value and Values for Water."
