Default document thumbnail


At the World Water Week (WWW) 2013, OECD launched two reports: Water Security for Better Lives. A Summary for Policy Makers and Water and Climate Change Adaptation: Policies to Navigate Uncharted Waters. Both reports clarify the concepts of risk, vulnerability and security and discuss policy instruments available to cope with water challenges. The latter report specifically looks into climate change impacts on hydric resources and highlights some adaptation approaches from OECD countries. Detailed information on the activities of the OECD during the WWW is available here.
