KOSMOS-Lecture: A water agenda fit for our times

Naho Mirumachi

This KOSMOS lecture will explore the major challenge of governing water as societies around the world face impacts of climate change. Water scarcity, pollution, degraded ecosystems and water-related hazards will continue to affect states, regions and communities. This challenge exposes the interconnections and dependencies of governments as states physically share rivers but also engage in global political processes to adapt water management. A new water agenda is needed to navigate these challenges. Water diplomacy can drive this agenda and go beyond abating water conflicts. Through water diplomacy, we need to tackle key questions on how we use water to produce food, take care of agricultural land, build urban environments, and provide water services and infrastructure.
The lecture offers ideas on how it is possible to transform the relationship between water and society and to redress inequalities borne through water use and lack of access.
