Webinar, 10th May: ‘On thin ice: Adapting water resources management’

Mark your calendars! The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)’s Water Network, the RésEAU, is delighted to announce a new webinar, which is open for all to attend.

Did you know that almost 25% of the world’s population depend on mountain cryosphere – glaciers, snow, permafrost, and ice in mountain areas – as their main source of water? Due to climate change, these ‘water towers’ are shrinking at unprecedented pace almost everywhere in the world.

How can water resource management deal with related uncertainties and why do we need to adopt more transformative approaches? In this webinar we approach these questions with scientific expertise and practical experience.
