Race to Zero Water Dialogues – “Water Reuse Renaissance”
12 November 2020
13:00 – 14:30 GMT, 14:00 – 15:30 CET
Water is key to a zero-carbon future. The sustainable management of water resources and water-related ecosystem services hold significant and largely untapped climate mitigation potential. Water-based innovations in agriculture, energy, and urban planning and infrastructure can help cities, regions, businesses, and countries adapt and become more resilient to the impacts of climate change. The current COVID-19 pandemic also reminds us that water as a resource is indispensable to healthy human life, and we need to protect, restore, and reuse it as climate change threatens its very availability.
