events event: Global Workshop on Source-to-Sea Management

Date: December 14, 2022 to December 16, 2022

Place:  Online, Geneva -

Description of the event: 

While freshwater and marine specialists have largely worked in silos, nature has always worked as one: the land, freshwater, and ocean ecosystems are closely interlinked and interdependent. The source-to-sea approach aims at bridging existing gaps by connecting the ecosystems’ management and tackling maritime pollution at the source, upstream. 

This workshop will gather experts and policymakers from the freshwater and ocean communities, as well as from transboundary basin organizations and marine organizations, with the aim to strengthen cooperation and to share good practices in policy-making and implementation of effective source-to-sea management.


Please register (virtual or in-person participation) through the Indico registeration website by Friday, 2 December 2022.  

This workshop will be preceded by the seventh meeting of the Task Force on the Water-Food Energy Ecosystems Nexus on 12-13 December 2022 (separate registration required).
