Day 3 Tuesday, 31 October 2023:Green water for restoring freshwater ecosystems and adapting to changing climates.

This day will highlight how green water is accounted for in developing national utilization plans, adaptation and mitigation strategies, and protecting and restoring freshwater ecosystems. Green water can be mismanaged or used unproductively. In addition, the wise and productive use of green water can potentially reduce demands on blue water. Because of this, green water must be accounted for if its potential contribution to the productivity, restoration, and sustainability of freshwater ecosystems is to be understood and optimized – not least in the context of nature-based solutions.
Under this Day, the CWW will cover the topics (but not limited to):
• Vulnerability of Freshwater ecosystems to global warming
• Mitigation and adaptation actions to restore freshwater ecosystems.
• Climate-smart irrigation & agriculture facilities
• Performing Green water accounting (water balance)
• Green water utilization and investment projects
