Water-Migration Nexus Side Event at UNFCC // Water Stress and Human Mobility: Freshwater Solutions for Resilience and Peacebuilding

The side event aims at contributing to and presenting the work of the Task Force on Displacement created at COP21 to develop recommendations for integrated approaches to avert, minimize and address displacement related to the adverse impacts of cli mate change. We will discuss a root cause of several global challenges such as poverty, conflict, instability, migration and sustainable growth deserving much greater recognition and attention: unsustainable use of land and water resources and degradation of ecosystems, in particular freshwater ecosystems.
