Geneva, Switzerland, 12-13 April 2011

The second workshop on water and adaptation to climate change in transboundary basins: challenges, progress and lessons learnt" will take place on 12 and 13 April 2011 in the Palais des Nations in Geneva, back-to-back with the fourth meeting of the Task Force on Water and Climate (14 April 2011). The workshop is the second one organized on this theme in the framework of the UNECE Water Convention, within its platform for exchanging experience on adaptation to climate change in the transboundary context. It will build on the results of last year’s workshop and illustrate recent developments in this area.

The workshop aims to exchange practical experience and share lessons-learned on the technical and strategic aspects of adapting to climate change; identify best practices, success factors and lessons learnt; share experience between the pilot projects on adaptation to climate change in transboundary basins under the Water Convention as well as other similar initiatives; and support governments, organizations and joint bodies engaged in the process of preparing national or regional adaptation strategies.

Mr. Charalampos Skoulikaris, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and Secretary General of the International Network of Water-Environment Centres for the Balkans (INWEB) will present his work on “Impacts of climate change on hydropower: the case of the transboundary Mesta/ Nestos river.”
