Scientists say we have less than a decade to act on climate, and any efforts to help the water sector recover stronger must contribute to progress on the climate crisis. The water sector has ample opportunities to contribute to climate mitigation and adaption efforts while pursuing sector goals like resilience and sustainability. From renewable energy generation to carbon sinks, water can help reduce the nation’s carbon footprint.

This four-hour event will explore insights and recent developments across the global water community on how utilities and countries are stepping up on climate action. Learn from experts about ongoing research on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from water, discover how the water sector can help achieve climate mitigation goals set out in the Paris Agreement, and engage with water utilities that are implementing #NetZeroWater strategies to meet GHG reduction targets.

Speakers include water utilities, decision-makers, researchers, and institutes from across the globe.

This symposium is part of the kick-off for the Imagination Challenge: Water’s Role in Race to Zero. A sector-wide Imagination Team will undertake this challenge, with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
