[CONFERENCE] 2nd European Climate Change Adaptation Conference

12-14 May 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark

 

 

 

The second biannual ‘European Climate Change Adaptation Conference’ will be hosted in Copenhagen in 2015. It is an initiative of a number of major European research projects and other stakeholders, amongst whom Ecologic Institute, one of RISC-KIT project partners. The conference will cover a broad range of issues related to climate change adaptation and will also place emphasis on understanding and assessing adaptation in action under the theme: "Integrating climate adaptation action in science, policy, practitioners and business". 

 

The conference will offer a unique platform for researchers, policy makers, and businesses to share new research results, novel policy developments, and practical implementation experiences regarding climate change impacts and adaptation, as well as highlight opportunities for business innovations aimed at supporting the transition to low carbon societies. Through the conference it will also be demonstrated how climate change adaptation in Europe can contribute to job creation and other societal benefits.

 

RISC-KIT will co-organise two sessions at the framework of the conference:

 

  • in collaboration with PEARL and under the title "Reducing Coastal Vulnerability in Europe: science, policy and application" the session will discuss the preliminary results of the two EU projects and raise awareness on the trans-disciplinary aspects of coastal risk reduction as well as providing examples of the interaction between policy makers, scientists and practitioners for use across Europe (Tuesday, 12 of May, 16.30-18.00, Auditorium 11).

  • in collaboration with BASE and Radost and under the title "Safeguarding our Shores: Social and Cultural Dimensions of Coastal Climate Change Adaptation in Europe" the session will explore the role of culture and history, and their integration in law and policy, in relation to perceptions, local knowledge and values concerning adapting to climate change in coastal regions in Europe and the US (Tuesday, 12 of May, 14.00-16.00, Auditorium 18).
