Climate change affects the world’s water in complex ways. From unpredictable rainfall patterns to shrinking ice sheets, rising sea levels, floods and droughts – most impacts of climate change come down to water. Climate change is exacerbating both water scarcity and water-related hazards (such as floods and droughts), as rising temperatures disrupt precipitation patterns and the entire water cycle.

India too is witnessing extreme weather conditions over the last few years. To tackle this cycle of extreme conditions as seen across several parts of the country, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organising a conference on ‘Moving from Risks to Resilience for a water secure future’ at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.

The one-day conference will bring together diverse stakeholders to deliberate on solutions to manage the overall water-ecosystem to accelerate action towards achieving water security and resilience.
