Climate Services – Problem-solving across the water-climate nexus

Water and climate are inextricably linked with water security being influenced by climate resilience and climate resilience depending on water security. However, the use of climate information in informing water security measures and planning can sometimes lack nuance, as can generalised tropes about the influence of a changing climate on the water sector and water users. In this OWN event, we invite climate scientists, water experts, and practitioners to reflect on how they have bridged the gap between climate and water information through communication or the development of novel tools to better understand challenges to water security in a changing climate. The discussion will also challenge participants to think about ways to use climate information in localised and context-appropriate ways and how to overcome challenges to normalising this practice.
