Event Description
Accelerating change and increasing uncertainty and risk pose challenges on how best to manage the world's limited freshwater resources. Therefore, it is essential that we equip decision-makers with the right tools.

With this perspective, the UN-Water Stakeholder Dialogue, sponsored by SIWI, will look at recent and promising initiatives in Green Accounting and Water Scenarios. In two consecutive panels composed of prominent experts and country representatives, these issues will be discussed in detail through posing probing questions to panelists.
