Climate-Resilient Water Management Approaches: Adaptation in an Age of Uncertainty

Over the past ten-plus years, various organizations have developed a set of complementary resilient water management tools and approaches to address climate risks and other uncertainties in a manner that can be integrated within existing planning, design, and operational decision processes. These “bottom-up approaches” differ from the dominant paradigm guiding water management for the past half-century — namely the assumption that we can use past hydrological and climatic data to confidently predict (and plan for) the future.

UNESCO’s Division of Water Sciences, together with the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) and the International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM), will host a series of webinars introducing the technical and practical components of bottom-up approaches, spanning a range of topics and underscored by examples of real-world applications.

Webinars will take place on a monthly basis in the lead up to a global conference on Climate-Resilient Water Management Approaches being organized by the same institutions and tentatively set for November 2020. The webinars are intended for technical water management professionals as well as individuals working in climate / water policy and planning.
