Waterweek
June 2008: The latest IPCC Technical Paper on Climate Change
and Water will be presented at World Water Week, scheduled to take place from
17-23 August 2008, in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Co-operative Programme on Water and Climate, the German
Federal Ministry of Environmental Cooperation and Development, the German
Federal Ministry for the Environment, the Nature Conservation and Nuclear
Safety, the Stockholm International Water Institute and other participating
organizations will organize a two-day Water and Climate session to address the
scope of the changing climate’s impact on human development and the complex but
central role water plays in adapting to those changes. Aside from the IPCC
Paper’s presentation, a panel discussion on the implications of those findings
on policy implementation will be held. Building on the theme of the 2007-2008
Human Development Report, a two-part seminar will take up “Climate-Proofing
Water and Development Strategies” and include a panel discussion on political implementation
featuring ministers from Africa,
Asia, Europe and Australia.
Other key topics to be covered include vulnerability, adaptation projects,
climate and water impacts on drinking water, groundwater and agriculture, and
regional perspectives. [World Water
