Interactive Online Session: International Water Law and Climate Change
(French simultaneous interpretation will be provided for this session)

WHEN: Tuesday 20 April, at 10:00 Stockholm time (CEST)

In 2021, GWP and Wuhan International Water Law Academy are co-organising an interactive online series called the "Transboundary freshwater security governance train". The series of online engagements sessions will be conducted in an approach of a ‘train’ stopping at various locations in the world, with focus on topics related to transboundary freshwater security. At each of the stops, a different topic from the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for Governance for Transboundary Freshwater Security will be explored. The 4th session is on International Water Law and Climate Change, and it takes place on 20 April, at 10.00am Stockholm time (CEST).

Please note: Prior to this online session, participants are encouraged to register to the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Governance for Transboundary Freshwater Security, and to take a look at Module 3: International Water Law and Module 6E: Financing climate change responses in transboundary basins.

The central question we would like to discuss in this interactive session on the theme of “international water law & climate change” is: What strategies are there to help countries adapt to/tackle climate change within a transboundary freshwater context? What are the legal challenges and how can national, regional, and global (legal) challenges be addressed?

Questions will be collected in advance (through the MOOC platform) and during the 1,5-hour-long session. Panellists will provide brief presentations and then the floor is open to questions in breakout rooms, which offers an opportunity to engage deeply with regional experts.
