In this video, James Dalton of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) describes the importance of efforts such as the Water ChangeMaker Awards to building resilient environments and communities in the face of climate change, COVID-19, and the water crisis.
The Water ChangeMaker Awards seek to highlight water initiatives that contribute to climate resilience. The Awards will honor teams and organizations who shape the water decisions that build climate resilience.
When asked if climate resilience will remain a priority in light of COVID-19, Dalton emphasizes the importance of building resilience to many challenges, including both climate change and the COVID-19 public health crisis.
The Water ChangeMaker Awards will accept submissions through June 7.
