Deadline: 18 January 2021

Over the last decade, climate change is accelerating and disrupting national economies and affecting livelihoods, particularly through the impact on water and water-related hazards. In this context, there is a clear need for complementary resilient water management tools and approaches addressing climate risk and other uncertainties through innovative adaptation strategies.

The purpose of this call is to solicit expressions of interest from individuals willing to participate as speakers in the monthly Webinar Series on Climate-resilient Water Management Approaches, organized by UNESCO’s Division of Water Sciences, the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) and the International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM). The webinar series introduces the technical and practical components of bottom-up approaches, spanning a range of topics and underscored by examples of real-world applications.

Based on the submitted information, the organizing team will review and select case studies meeting the webinar thematic criteria. Selected candidates will then be invited to carry out a presentation on their experience with implementing these so-called bottom-up approaches during one of the upcoming webinars in 2021.

Interested candidates are requested to submit to p.breskvar@unesco.org(link">p.breskvar@unesco.org(link sends e-mail) by 18 January 2021: A CV showcasing their professional experience; An application form.
You are kindly invited to further spread the word about this opportunity among your contacts and networks.
