Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources Hany Sewilam said the water pavilion at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP27) aims to integrate water and climate action, especially as most world climate disasters are related to water.

Sewilam made the remarks while he was inspecting the water pavilion, which is erected within the activities of the COP27 that is taking place in the Egyptian Red Sea city of Sharm El Sheikh from 6-18 November, according to a statement released by the irrigation ministry on Sunday.

The irrigation minister added around 40 international organizations are due to take part in the water pavilion, noting that a water day will be designated as part of the UN conference activities, to discuss the effects of climate change on water issues.

He explained that an initiative to adapt to climate change in the water sector would be launched on the sidelines of the COP27.

The initiative is based on water conservation, improvement of water supply and strengthening the linkage between water and climate action, as well as shaping an agreed policy on climate change adaptation measures.
