Webinar // NEXUS Gains Talks 7: Carbon Emissions from Inland Water
This NEXUS Gains talk provides insights into the carbon–water nexus and the impacts stemming from water resource interventions. The session is being held by the NEXUS Gains – a One CGIAR Initiative that will examine water, energy, food and ecosystem (WEFE) systems in transboundary bread-basket basins in East Africa (Blue Nile Basin), Southern Africa (Limpopo and Incomati Basins), Central Asia (Aral Sea Basin) and South Asia (Ganges and Indus Basins).
December 8, 2022, 18:30–19:30 IST I online
About the event
Globally, water and carbon cycles are tightly coupled. Water contributes to the movement of carbon through the environment and contributes directly and indirectly to the amount of carbon stored within landscapes (e.g. in soils, forests and wetlands), and greenhouse gases emitted from those stores. By altering natural processes in the water cycle, and through energy use, human interventions in water resource management affect both the sequestration and emissions of carbon. This NEXUS Gains talk provides insights into the carbon–water nexus and the impacts stemming from water resource interventions.
- Bunyod Holmatov (NEXUS Gains and IWMI): Carbon footprint of water: how it relates to the water, energy, food and environment nexus and why it is important
- Nishadi Eriyagama (NEXUS Gains and IWMI): Estimating greenhouse gas emissions from reservoirs in the context of the water, energy, food and environment nexus
The two presentations will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Matthew McCartney (NEXUS Gains Lead and IWMI).
