Webinar | Strategic Partnerships for a Common Water Agenda in the Americas: Experience from Brazil
September 25, 2020 – Organized by the Organization of American States, this webinar gathered water specialists from diverse organizations in Brazil to mitigate potential climate change impacts on water resources and address water-related risks. The virtual meeting aimed at sharing experiences, lessons learned, and good practices from Brazil to better respond to recurring water crises across the Americas using a collaborative approach. Brazil shared its experience in facing droughts while 2030 WRG – drawing from the case of the partnership’s own program and current initiatives in São Paulo – shared its global experience in establishing multi-stakeholder platforms to advance the implementation of coordinated actions for water security.
Participants included representatives and national experts from sectors that are repeatedly affected by droughts and floods in Brazil and elsewhere in the Americas, members of the hydrometeorological community, and decision-makers.
