fully integrated into climate
adaptation and mitigation
• Water must be addressed
comprehensively through the
establishment of appropriate

Climate change is water change
• Water must be integrated more
effectively into existing
mechanisms under the UNFCCC
• Existing expertise and
knowledge needs to be readily
available to enhance the efforts
of Parties addressing climate
change and water change in a
sustainable manner
Proposals for the
Climate Change Negotiations
• Secure the role and knowledge of water management guiding the
work of the UNFCCC Adaptation Committee
• Develop a thematic focus initiative on water resources under the
Nairobi Work Programme
Proposals for the
Climate Change Negotiations
• SBSTA should request UNFCCC to
convene a workshop under the Nairobi
Work Programme on the contribution
of water management in building
climate resilience to climate change
• Report back to SBSTA on the way
• Establish water as a priority under the
Green Climate Fund
• Water management knowledge and
experiences should inform upcoming
decisions on REDD+
