Event Details

The IPCC Working Group 1 report makes grim reading. Strong evidence from thousands of studies across the globe was brought together to detail how the climate is and will change. Floods, droughts and other extreme events like heatwaves and cyclones are the main ways in which people across the world are feeling the impacts of climate change, and it comes as no surprise that many of these impacts are water-related. Understanding the implications and regional variations highlighted by the IPCC report for future water management is crucial. In this session, the authors of the IPCC report will share insights about water-related changes, including extreme weather events due to climate change and panelists’ will discuss the implications of the same for adaptation and mitigation.
