The United Nations World Water Development Report 2020: Water and Climate Change
Global warming threatened the right to water and sanitation for "potentially billions of people" said the United Nations World Water Development Report 2020 report released on World Water Day. Policymakers and businesses should seek to manage water resources better, to economise on the electricity and fuel needed to pump, clean and deliver water, the report said.
The 2020 edition of the World Water Development Report (WWDR 2020) entitled ‘Water and Climate Change’ aims at helping the water community to tackle the challenges of climate change and informing the climate change community about the opportunities that improved water management offers in terms of adaptation and mitigation. The 2020 United Nations World Water Development Report focuses on the challenges, opportunities and potential responses to climate change, in terms of adaptation, mitigation and improved resilience that can be addressed through improving water management. Combining climate change adaptation and mitigation, through water, is a win-win proposal, improving the provision of water supply and sanitation services and combating both the causes and impacts of climate change, including disaster risk reduction.
