Hydro Nation Virtual Water Pavilion

Body
As Glasgow hosts COP26, this virtual pavilion highlights how Scotland, as a Hydro Nation, is working across our water sector to respond to the challenges of climate change.

Scotland’s Hydro Nation Strategy was established in 2012, to fulfil the statutory duty on Scottish Ministers to ensure “the development of the value of Scotland's water resources". In the context of climate change, this means that we recognise the importance of responsible stewardship of our water resources to delivering an innovative water sector that supports a flourishing low-carbon economy and plays a crucial role in international development support.

The Hydro Nation Virtual Experience highlights some key examples of this activity and features six tours themed on key areas of Scotland’s Hydro Nation delivery. Please take some time to explore the content and immerse yourself in Scotland’s iconic water landscapes.

You will also find a planner and information on key waters-related events at the conference to assist you in planning your COP26 around water.

Visions of tomorrow for a sustainable future in Scotland and Malawi

2050 Climate group 

Green zone: Tower base

Watch Live: Visions of tomorrow for a sustainable future in Scotland and Malawi | #COP26 - YouTube

The international collaboration between Malawi Scotland Partnership and 2050 Climate Group was announced by the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in 2018 at the 2050 Climate Group Youth Summit. We’ve been supported by the Scottish Government since then and we are thrilled to have Màiri McAllan, Minister for Environment and Land Reform join our session to discuss the importance of supporting collaborations between Scotland and Malawi young leaders.

Our partnership is based on the premise that young people are at the forefront of climate action. We believe that the urgent work of addressing the climate crisis is one that needs collaboration and a global mindset.

Our session will cover the work that we do in our respective countries, our visions for the future and our key asks out of COP26. You will hear from leaders in Malawi and Scotland. Come and hear our stories.
