GPPN launches report for Copenhagen Climate Change Negotiations
The GPPN has launched a report for Copenhagen tomake the case for water as a critical consideration for climate change in the broader context of the UNFCCC, up to and beyond COP15. It has taken the six themes that were covered during the Water Day on 3rd November during the UNFCCC negotiations in Barcelona, addressing water as a cross-cutting consideration in response to climate change: Water and Livelihoods, Water and Land, Water and Transboundary Resource Management, Water and Water and Energy, and Water and Gender.
This report intends to provide a briefing of some of the critical considerations in each of these areas, identifying key messages and why they are relevant to the UNFCCC. It is hoped that it will provide a helpful resource for decision-makers and negotiators as they begin to elaborate details on a shared vision and co-ordinated response to the climate change challenge.
