ABOUT THE FORUM
The 2015 International Water & Climate Forum took the discussion about adaptation and mitigation in the water sector to the next level by focusing on what utilities have been doing in their communities to implement climate adaptation and mitigating strategies. This unique event mobilized attendees to be visionary thinkers and to expand their knowledge base with the ultimate goal of promoting long-term sustainability and fostering water supply and ecosystem resilience.
Specifically focusing on climate adaptation and mitigation strategies for water utilities, the gathering detailed lessons learned from the front line, advanced proven best practices and stimulated thinking about future solutions.
Forum speakers included utility managers, climate change planners and scientists, policy makers and practitioners from around the globe.
In March 2016, a Forum Synthesis Report was produced, identifying six key themes and nine key take-aways from the presentations and discussions.
