Water is the language of climate change – Panel discussion with Prof J. Srinivasan, Erik Solheim, Mridula Ramesh and Marcus Moench

The best panel is one where one comes away learning new nuances and feeling energized. This was one of the best and on a topic close to my heart.

Climate speaks through water. As our climate changes, rising global temperatures are causing more intense storms; untimely and intense rainfall is leading to frequent floods and droughts, causing sea levels to rise and glaciers to melt. We face not only a rapidly careening climate crisis but also a brutal change in our water reality. We HAVE to adapt for the future NOW. Since only 3% of the Earth’s water is fresh, time is already running out for us. What are our options to safeguard our water with the global population reaching 10 billion by 2050? Our panel deliberates.
