World Bank Water at COP27: Sustainable Water Storage and River Basin Management for Resilience

Today, most countries are placing unprecedented pressure on water resources, and water scarcity affects more than 40% of the global population. Water storage is a key part of responding to increased water demands across all uses, and especially in responding to the impacts of climate change. This COP27 session presents the World Bank’s upcoming report on water storage: "What the Future has in Store: A New Paradigm for Climate-Resilient Water Storage." This is followed by short presentations on examples of storage and water resources management from across the globe.
