The meeting is expected to bring together member states as well as regional and international experts and organizations concerned with implications that climate change is expected to have on water resources and vulnerability. To that effect, the meeting will review the state of knowledge in this area and foster in a set of interactive discussions at the plenary and working group levels to achieve the following objectives:
  • Stocktaking and exchange of lessons learned on the assessment of vulnerability of water resources to climate change from other regions.
  • Review of existing models and methodologies and investigate knowledge gaps and data availability.
  • Building consensus on the scope, methodological approach and associated parameters for the vulnerability assessment.
  • Developing a work plan, which will identify the tasks and responsibilities to be carried out by the involved agencies based on agreed upon timelines and targets.
