Water and climate change - 04.08.2010

Register for Local Governments'Day on local water strategies in a changing climate
The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), Climate Alliance and ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability are organising a Local Governments' Day to be held on 13 September 2010 in Munich, Germany.

The event's programme, entitled 'Cities adapt: local water strategies in a changing climate", will give local and regional elected representatives as well as experts the opportunity to share their experiences on adapting water management to a changing climate.

Building knowledge on the impacts of climate change on local water systems and identifying key ingredients for a successful adaptation strategy will be among the topics discussed during the Local Governments' Day. The governance dimension will also be addressed through good examples of cooperation on a municipal and regional scale. Thus, the contribution of local governments to the EU strategy on adaptation to climate change will be outlined.

The Local Governments' Day is to be held in conjunction with IFAT ENTSORGA, the International Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Refuse and Recycling, at which some 4000 participants interested in water issues will gather from 13 to 17 September.
