In this call, they focus on the interrelations between water and climate and taking into account their links, in order to integrate the protection of this natural resource in the fight against global warming. The links between Water and Climate have been regularly demonstrated and highlighted, the disruption of one or the other modifying the distribution of water on Earth.

The aim of this call for proposals is to learn from these projects, both on the threats to the water cycle caused by human activities and on the actions taken to protect the balance of this cycle in the fight against climate change.
