This event will lay the foundation for an envisioned long-term engagement between the UNFCCC, GCF, WMO, and potentially the wider UN-Water community as well as other relevant communities of practice that can facilitate transformative action to address water-climate challenges in developing countries.

The objectives of the event are to:

  • Elaborate on the action pledge and highlight various areas for synergistic collaboration with relevant communities of practice 
  • Highlight the mandates and potential role of the UNFCCC, GCF, and WMO in realizing the ambitions of this action pledge
  • Understand the role of other stakeholders – including other UN agencies and networks such as UN-Water, UNEP, UNDRR, and UNCCD with their various global agendas and mandates, and non-UN agencies involved in addressing water-climate challenges, especially in developing countries
  • Gain insights to inform the operational framework of the action pledge
