Task Force on Water and Climate

The Task Force on Water and Climate is responsible for activities related to adaptation to climate change, including flood and drought management.  It has the following objectives:

(a) increase adaptive capacity and improve cooperation in climate change adaptation and mitigation in transboundary basins;
(b) increase funding for basin-wide or coordinated climate change adaptation measures in transboundary basins by facilitating access to climate funds and building related capacity;
(c) increase awareness of the importance of water and transboundary cooperation in climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction at the national and transboundary levels and in intergovernmental global processes, such as United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Task Force also serves as a venue for the exchange of experience in climate change adaptation between basins and countries across the world. For more information on past and present activities under the Task Force please click here.
