Water: How to preserve water on a European scale?
Water is subject to strong anthropogenic pressures, endangering ecosystems and human health. Non-state actors (NGOs, local and regional authorities, businesses, etc.) have a crucial role to play in sustainable water management to enable development. The EU Commission’s Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (2021) emphasises the importance of sustainable access to freshwater to foster resilience to climate change and cites nature-based solutions as an adequate resolution to water challenges.
This workshop on the challenge of water preservation in Europe will propose a dialogue on concrete and operational actions to solve water-related problems and ensure the resilience of territories to climate change in Europe. The proposals resulting from this workshop will be addressed to European leaders, and thereafter, presented at the World Water Forum in Dakar in March 2022.
