2nd International Conference On Water and Climate


Following the success of the first International Conference on Water and Climate « Water Security for Climate Justice » held in Rabat in July 2016, the World Water Council, with the support of the CoP22 Chair as represented by the State Secretariat for Water of the Kingdom of Morocco, and with the collaboration of other international partners, will organize the second edition of the event on 3-4 October in Marseille, France.

As for the past edition, the principle objective of the meeting is to mobilize and encourage a range of political, institutional, technical, and scientific stakeholders to work together so that water remains an important element of climate discussions within the UNFCCC’s 23rd Conference of the Parties in November of 2017.

The program will offer special focuses on water for food, urban resilience, and water for Africa within the context of climate change. A detailed agenda and registration information will be forthcoming.
