Attached is a short piece called Lifeboats and Icebergs-- on climate
change, water and the need for political adaptation. It was written out
of some frustration that-- in terms of activist focus- the linkage
between climate change and water is often ignored, and more attention to
adaptation is needed (but not as an alternative to mitigation and in a
fully political context). After all water impacts will be experienced
most severely at the local level by the poorest.
Your ideas and comments?
We are getting warmed up for COP17 here in Durban. Hope to have a
conference call with water warriors on COP17 plans soon...
