Online Roundtable: Climate change adaptation


Online - find registration link below

25 June 2020

In addition to climate mitigation, climate adaptation measures have become increasingly important when addressing the impacts of climate change. Although these measures are now well-known, as climate adaptation plans are developed at local, regional and national levels, a gap remains between vision, planning, and implementation.

This is particularly the case in cross-border regions.

In an effort to enhance stakeholders’ knowledge of the implementation barriers linked to climate adaptation solutions, ESPON is organizing a roundtable dedicated to climate change adaptation, on 25 June 2020 in Brussels.

Discussions during this half-day event will specifically cover the urban heat island effect, droughts, and water/erosion in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, North-Rein Westphalia, and Hauts-de-France.

Target groups of the event: The event is geared towards (inter)national, subnational and local policy-makers deciding on territorial/regional sustainable development strategies, planning, and governance in SDG, city networks, inter-municipal and inter-regional associations, INGOs, and academics in sustainable development and climate change.
