The statement urges heads of state and government to take more integrated water and climate action to replace the existing fragmented approach where water is often seen as a problem to one where water is “part of the solution” to achieve the Paris Agreement climate goals.

The Water and Climate Leaders are a panel of 18 high-level decision and policy makers, which provides strategic guidance on integrating the water and climate agendas and fronts the Global Water Partnership, an international coalition spearheaded by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and nine UN agencies.

The Water and Climate Leaders stress that improved management of water resources is vital and would have numerous benefits in reducing climate-induced disaster risks, enhancing climate change resilience and security, and reducing emissions.
