Freshwater ecosystems are critical for sustainable development and climate resilience but are increasingly under threat and degraded. How can we together accelerate action to improve the health of these ecosystems? Leveraging the experience of a pilot project which supported countries in the protection and restoration of freshwater ecosystems, this online event will discuss how to identify key drivers of change, develop strategic responses and implement priority actions. It will build on the cases of Kenya and Kazakhstan, with a second event on December 6 highlighting the case of Argentina. The webinar will be in English and Russian, with interpretation provided.
