This annual meeting organized by the Swedish International Water institute (SIWI) brings together over 2,500 individuals representing 200+ organizations from country governments, scientific, business, policy and civil society communities who are advancing work on the state of water sources, environmental health, livelihoods and poverty reduction agendas. It focuses on linking best practices, scientific understanding and policy and decision-making from a global perspective, but the context adjusts to differences/similarities between regions of the world, phases of development, political systems and climatic conditions.
CI’s team focused on profiling our portfolio of work in freshwater biodiversity, ecosystem management, service provision/valuation and climate change mitigation/adaptation. Our program of work for freshwater security builds from sound science to effective field action and our flagship projects target critical freshwater ecosystems, threats to flows, and innovative, replicable solutions for the conservation of entire natural freshwater systems, from headwater to estuary.
We also concentrated on forming collaborations with partners and continuing to support the biodiversity agenda in the Environmental Flows Network (eFlowNet). Environmental flows (Eflows) describe the quantity, quality and timing of water flows required to sustain freshwater and estuarine ecosystems and the human livelihoods and well-being that depend upon them. The Eflows concept links the biophysical, including hydrological properties of natural systems, to freshwater-related services proved for people
