Third workshop on Water and Adaptation to Climate Change, Geneva, 25-26 April 2012

Third workshop on water and adaptation to climate change in transboundary basins: Making adaptation work will take place on 25 and 26 April 2012 in the Palais des Nations in Geneva, back-to-back with the fifth meeting of the Task Force on Water and Climate (27 April 2012).

This workshop will bring together persons from all over the world, engaged in activities on water and adaptation to climate change and variability, in particular in transboundary basins. It offers a platform for exchanging experience on climate change adaptation strategies, best practices, success factors and lessons learned.

Abstracts for presentations on the workshops topics (economic aspects, adaptation measures, integrating spatial and governance levels, vulnerability assessment, ecosystem approach, integrating sectoral interests) can be submitted until 5 March 2012. Please note that all contributions should be focused, as much as possible, on transboundary issues and that all topics relate to both extremes of too much and too little water.
