• INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON WATER, ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE
    6-8 April, 2019, CAIRO – EGYPT

OVERVIEW

The issue of climate change is the most important and pressing issue for the international community today. Given the serious implications and impact of the climate change, e.g. drying up of some rivers, the sinking of vast portions of coastal areas and the reduction of production areas in the world, the climate change is a global threat to water. This can lead to the world’s highest economic losses.

Water scarcity has become a critical challenge in various countries of the world that are suffering from a lack of water resources to meet existing demands in terms of the quantity or quality of drought, groundwater depletion and the disastrous effects on ecology of an environment that increases the acceleration of climate change.

Addressing climate change is one of the 17 sustainable Development goals of the Global plan for sustainable development, which is part of the 2030 agenda, adopted by the 193 member States of the United Nations in 2015.

During the Conference of the Parties (COP) 21 SDG agreements including, ambitious targets for both water and climate change have been committed. Our common task is now to implement these goals and targets with a greater focus on the Arab region.

The International Conference on Water, Environment and Climate Change is therefore dedicated to addressing, discussing and delivering implementable solutions to address the current challenges of bridging the gap between government policy makers and providers of science and solutions with innovative ideas and new visions to help resolve the challenges facing us in the area of water, environment and climate change.

The conference will include representatives from the public and private sectors, research, academia, civil society and governments to discuss many topics, including scientific backgrounds, adaptation, mitigation, increased ownership, transparency in the 2030 agenda, climate goals, partnerships and security. It will also focus on the need for leaders to innovate in different but interlinked dimensions of water, climate change and environmental management. The active engagement of the public and private sector can contribute the most effectively through Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and can deliver very significant improvements.
