The event, convened by the UNFCCC Sharm el-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda (SAA) and the COP28 Presidency, will launch a new working group on urban water resilience. This technical working group aims to integrate non-state urban water sector actors into global climate actions, setting shared 2030 targets. It further seeks to enhance collaboration among city stakeholders and bridge city networks with national Parties. Participants will share their experiences, demonstrating how their initiatives collectively support the achievement of urban water-related 2030 targets outlined in the SSA agenda and how they can contribute to the overarching SSA outcomes.
