Messages from Henk Ovink and Oyun Sanjaasuren were inspiring and showed provided examples of facing different crisis and many challenges, but still being able to create solutions, reach sustainable development objectives or goals and how to adapt to climate change. The coalitions of partners is a great point and is essential to manage crisis.

In terms of financing climate change programmes it would be ideal to consider investments for hydrologic measuring networks. In my region, Latin America and the Caribbean, institutions responsible for managing these networks and providing hydro-meteorological information services  are sadly experiencing  a decline of stations drop-outs and poor dissemination of information due to lack of resources to install new stations, to cover costs of operation and maintenance, an limited personnel.
