Stressing the fact that water is a human right, this webinar on climate change could not ignore the current crisis on COVID19. IWRA’s Scott McKenzie brought together a selection of experts stretching from China, South Asia and Central America to discuss the link between water and climate. The discussions circulated around solutions for fighting climate change and tapping unconventional resources, to understanding the devastating effect that it can have for people in remote areas of the Himalayas and the dry corridor of Central America.
