2024

Water is at the centre of some of our greatest global challenges and can serve as a strategic asset or resource to maximise co-benefits of water-related strategies and activities, and help advance a just transition for climate resilience, incorporating principles of justice, inclusivity, cooperation, and sustainability, participatory and representative decision-making, and stronger institutions.

On 22nd March 2024, Scotland will join the annual World Water Day observance with its national event entitled ‘Leveraging Water for a Just Transition’. Some of the main questions we will seek to address at this event are: How can water act as a strategic asset to transition to a more sustainable economy in a way that is fair and inclusive to everyone? How can we maximise the co-benefits from water-related activities? How can water contribute to climate resilience? How can we leverage partnerships and cooperation (theme of Scotland’s WWD2023) drawing on local, regional, and transboundary examples.

This free hybrid event is hosted by the Hydro Nation International Centre and supported by the Scottish Government.
