Under the theme ‘The role of water in Adaptation to Climate Change’, the MEP Water Group organised a well attended public session on the 6th of December at the European Parliament in Brussels.

The session was chaired by Esther de Lange, President of the MEP Water Group and featured four high-level panellists who stressed the importance of water, while addressing the topic of adaptation to climate change. Esther de Lange: "Climate change is not a product of our fantasy but it is a real fact, which brings along as many challenges as opportunities". 

All speakers agreed that the EU needs to send out strong messages when it comes to climate change and that we all need to preserve the value of water for the future.
