Water is "The Connector" in the Climate Change Challenge


OOSKAnews invites readers to watch this video interview which we conducted recently with Dr John Matthews, Co-Founder and Secretariat Co-ordinator of the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA).

Dr Matthews' conversation with David Duncan, OOSKAnews' Publisher was recorded as a follow-up to an "OOSKAnews Voices" Column authored by Matthews and published last month in which he relected in particular on the 23rd session of the conference of parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The full article, headlined "Too Much Too Quickly, UNFCCC, COP23 and the Sharpening Mind" can be read HERE. The follow-up video interview explores these matters further, with focus on the past and future roadmaps for increasing recognition of the importance of adaptation in global climate considerations, and the place of water as a "connector" across climate change discourse. <--break->
