Water Security and Climate Change Conference
1 December - 3 December 2022
WSCC provides a platform for discussions on water and food secure societies, by creating a stimulating environment that produces innovative ideas and clear pathways towards their implementation.
The key focus area is “adaptation for sustainable and resilient development”. This area is particularly significant in view of the caveat issued by the recently launched Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “that opportunities for adaptation to many climate risks will likely become constrained and have reduced effectiveness should 1.5°C global warming be exceeded.” It is now well established that adaptation is more of a ‘necessity’ than a ‘choice’ for climate-resilient development.
