Focus on the interplay of climate change with other stressors in the Yangtze River and Yellow River wider basins. Aim to prepare a comprehensive report on options to integrate climate adaptation with other key policies – low-carbon pathways, integrated land-use planning, sustainable fisheries, pollution control, nitrogen recycling and other goals. The Chief Advisors suggest the following issues that the SPS may wish to consider in its work:
- Pathways to advance integrated river basin management in the context of climate change;
- Suggestions to align integrated freshwater management with the Sustainable Development Goals, and options for different tools and methods, including basin-wide indicators, forward scenario planning, regulations.
