The session will highlight how Green water is accounted for in developing national utilization plans, adaptation and mitigation strategies, and protecting, and restoring freshwater ecosystems. green water can be mismanaged or used unproductively. In addition, the wise and productive use of green water has the potential to reduce demands on blue water. Because of this, green water must be accounted for, if its potential contribution to the productivity, restoration, and sustainability of freshwater ecosystems is to be understood and optimized – not least in the context of nature-based solutions.
