This side event – in digital format – intends to discuss with different sectors of civil society and actors of the water resources management system strategies about challenges in the pursuit for achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda in the face of the challenges imposed for water management which concerns access to quality and quantity water by all social classes, regardless of geographic and economic regions. It is intended to discuss universal access to water that also respects communities of original peoples (indigenous peoples and their importance for the protection of springs) and peripheral regions, often neglected by public planning. Alongside collaborative participation between sectors (government, private, civil society) and through exchanges of experiences through networks, the aim is to discuss commitments so that the goals of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Water Action Decade are clearly committed to actions that seek government commitment to these goals. The side event will have as speakers,

representatives of the following institutions: Networks of Basin Organisms (INBO, RELOC and REBOB), Brazilian National Water Agency (ANA), NGOs (Nosso Vale Nossa Vida, International Rivers and SOS Mata Atlântica), Water Governance Observatory in Brazil, Federal Prosecution Service, UERJ (State University of Rio de Janeiro) and the institution for the defense of indigenous peoples, the Sapucai Tenonjerã Commission, demonstrating the commitment of these entities to place water as a central theme of public policies. The theme is necessary, especially with the impacts that climate change is affecting the water management in the worldwide and, in particular, the lack of contingency plans for these impacts among management tools in Brazil and Latin America. Adaptations are needed and the importance of monitoring water governance, protection of water sources and engaging civil society in this process will be central to the success of planning actions that will make cities more resilient and still meet the goals of the Water Action Decade.

This event will have interpretation from portuguese to english and english to portuguese
