The Observatory is a dynamic platform for research and in-depth analysis that deals with the Green Economy trends according to two main interpretations – Policy and Management – to which two different working tables, integrated and in strict synergy, are dedicated. The first working table is dedicated to the analysis of, on the one side, the evolution of the policies for the support and development of the Green Economy and, on the other side, of trends in the sectors directly involved.

WB Report assesses impacts of water scarcity on economy and conflicts

The World Bank released a new report “High and Dry: Climate Change, Water, and the Economy”, explaining risks and impacts of water scarcity exacerbated by climate change on economic growth, migration and conflicts.

The report shows that both regions currently aboundant or short-supplied by water can face water scarcity due to climate impacts and increasing demand for water. Water insecurity can affect cities’ economy, people’s lives and jobs, and also spark new conflicts and migrations.

However, the negative impacts and risks can be prevented through better policies and water management measures: a far-reaching water resources planning allocation, incentives for water efficiency and investment in infrastructures are necessary to address the problem.
