Water: Key to adaptation and resilience 

Time/date: 09:00-10:30 | 31 August 2016, Wednesday 

Venue: Room # NL 357


The provision of reservoir storage capacity has long been a cornerstone of national economic development and water security. If properly planned, designed, constructed and maintained, reservoirs offer indispensable benefits like flood control, drought mitigation, hydropower, and irrigation, among others. With growing evidence of climate change and demands to increase resilience, properly planned reservoirs are needed to promote development and meet basic human needs worldwide.

The event will present policy and governance implications emerging from these case studies as a contribution to the debate on adaptation measures in the post COP21 landscape.  

  • ICIMOD’s Shahriar Wahid to represent as a panelist.
