World Water Day 2022

A Solutions-Driven Workshop on Climate Impacts on Freshwater

Co-hosted by CIFAL York and the Office of the Provost, in partnership with the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research, York University 

Part of CIFAL York’s In-Focus Knowledge Exchange Series for Nature, Climate, and People  

Recording of the World Water Day

The impacts of climate change and ecosystem degradation are experienced by local communities regionally and around the world. These experiences are exacerbated by underlying social inequities. World Water Day is an opportunity to contextualize research that sheds light on these experiences against the backdrop of global efforts to boost ambition on adaptation action, and strengthening inter-regional and cross-boundary adaptation to the impacts of planetary stressors - e.g., food systems, water, agriculture and fisheries, and energy - with special focus on human and environmental health.
