Adapting to Climate Change in Practice: where are we today, what do we need for tomorrow?
International Conference, 7–8 June 2016, Berne / Switzerland
Most Central European countries have developed their own adaptation strategies over the past few years, and it is now questions relating to the implementation of these strategies which are taking centre stage. How can regions, cities and municipalities reduce their climate-related risks and exploit any resulting opportunities? How can researchers, government departments and industry professionals work together successfully on the adaptation process? What underlying conditions will be required? The aim of this international conference is to deliver the answers to these questions. The emphasis will be on concrete examples and experience gathered from the practical implementation of adaptation measures in Central Europe. Projects and measures will be presented and discussed in eight sessions focusing on different challenges. The framework is provided by several overarching topics, namely: strategies, governance approaches, forms of cooperation and knowledge transfer.
