Activity Brief: Regional Day Programme From Risk to Resilience: South Asia Regional Framework for Sustainable Water Management
Disasters affect lives and infrastructure. Because of disasters, infrastructures built over the years often do not fully fulfill their intended services. Affected countries oftentimes have to restart their development by diverting funds and aid money to get them ‘back on track’ toward economic and social development. South Asia is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. Climate change not only adversely affects water resources but also makes the region vulnerable to various hydrological shocks.
With this background, the Global Water Partnership South Asia (GWP SAS) the APAN thematic node for water and the India Water Partnership (IWP) in association with SAARC Disaster Management Centre (SDMC), WAPCOS Limited organised the Regional Day Programme of GWP SAS on “From Risk to Resilience: South Asia Regional Framework for Sustainable Water Management” on 15 January 2015 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi during the India Water Week 2015.
