The climate crisis is a water crisis. Extreme flooding, stronger cyclones, longer drought periods and record heat temperatures are just a few examples of its devastating impact around the world. The upcoming 9 months will be crucial. The Stockholm World Water Week, UN Climate Summit (COP 27) and UN Water 2023 Conference shall be pivotal moments in fighting the climate and water crises. We can only do this if we work together.
