“Get serious about water,” eminent panel urges COP27: Climate change impacts are felt through water


Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, 8 November 2022 _ "There is no time to waste. Now is the time to get serious about water as an imperative for climate action," according to a joint statement from an eminent panel of  Water and Climate Leaders at the UN climate negotiations, COP27.

The statement urges heads of state and government to take more integrated water and climate action to replace the existing fragmented approach where water is often seen as problem as water  being "part of the solution" to achieve the Paris Agreement goals.
