This World Water Week 2020 session aimed to create dialogue around the undeniable link between climate change and its impact on water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). The session brought together representatives from different countries to discuss the impacts on access to water and sanitation that they are facing due to climate change. The focus of the session was on the impacts that countries located in the South Hemisphere are facing. It was an opportunity for cooperation between United Nations Global Compact Local Networks, companies, NGOs, and UN Agencies, an opportunity to take action to improve access to water and sanitation in order to be more resilient and deal with the effects of climate change. The goal was to explore opportunities for multi-stakeholder cooperation to address WASH impacts exacerbated by climate change impacts. The Pacific Institute is Co-Secretariat of the CEO Water Mandate, a UN Global Compact initiative that mobilizes business leaders on water, sanitation, and the Sustainable Development Goals.
