Henk Ovink: Water solutions for climate change
Henk Ovink, Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, discusses the need for a more holistic, circular approach to water and climate change, including the adoption of nature-based solutions for climate adaptation and resilience.
Speaking on water in relation to COVID-19, Henk added:
