The GPPN has launched a report for Copenhagen tomake the case for water as a critical consideration for climate change in the broader context of the UNFCCC, up to and beyond COP15. I
It has taken the six themes that were covered during the Water Day on 3rd November during the UNFCCC negotiations in Barcelona, addressing water as a cross-cutting consideration in response to climate change: Water and Livelihoods, Water and Land, Water and Transboundary Resource Management, Water and Water and Energy, and Water and Gender.
This report intends to provide a briefing of some of the critical considerations in each of these areas, identifying key messages and why they are relevant to the UNFCCC. It is hoped that it will provide a helpful resource for decision-makers and negotiators as they begin to elaborate details on a shared vision and co-ordinated response to the climate change challenge.
