Topics of climate change, fossil fuels and water resources are highly connected and they influence each other – extreme weather events, draughts and floods, biodiversity, impacts of the coal and gas industry are just some examples of cross-cutting issues. How can we link the impacts of fossil fuels and climate crisis on underground water resources? How does the climate crisis influence water and biodiversity in Europe? How to use the recent developments around the EU water legislation as hooks for debates around the right to water, climate ambition and fossil fuel phase-out?
