A 3-part webinar series is held in February and March to strengthen climate and water linkages in national climate action plans such as the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and various investment mechanisms. The series is jointly organised by Cap-Net, UNDP, AGWA, SIWI, Water Governance Facility and GWP. It is the second webinar series organised on the theme water and climate - the first round of webinars were held in July 2020.

The webinars aim in particular to highlight climate and water interlinkages and contribute to improve the coordination across climate and water decision-makers and professionals; provide examples of coordination and implantation mechanisms and introduce the financing landscape of climate and water.

The learning objectives are:

  • To build awareness and understanding on linkages between climate and water
  • To build awareness and understanding on plans and tools to support implementation of water and climate coordination
  • To build awareness and understanding on financing mechanisms on climate and water coordination
