International Waters learning Exchange & Resource Network

Webinar IV - Video

IW:LEARN Webinar by WWF on Wednesday, December 6, 2017.

We live in an era where the extremes of water scarcity and flooding are already a reality in many parts of the world, and are bound to worsen in the coming years due to climate change. Women are often at the heart of water-related issues and they also need to be at the heart of adaptation efforts. Women have valuable knowledge and skills in managing water and are often the front-line of adaptation, yet they are often removed from the decision-making processes that affect their access to this precious resource. This webinar took place on 6 December and discussed the major issues faced by women around the world in an era of climate change and offered possible solutions to support women’s active engagement in the management and decision processes for water resources.
