This document highlights the climate-compatible actions carried out by French water stakeholders in France and internationally to mitigate and adapt to climate change. These initiatives were pre-selected by a multi-stakeholder steering committee consisting mostly of scientists. These actions serve as input to the Agenda of Solutions listing all the good practices supported or implemented by governments and non-state actors.
Actions set out in this document demonstrate the ability of all stakeholders to take action to respond positively to the challenges of the century: the climate is everyone’s responsibility! Decision-makers at all levels should get involved in concrete initiatives to ensure that actions to protect the climate also protect water resources and vice versa.
