The 5th European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA 2021) takes place from 25 May to 22 June 2021. A series of 9 webinars is organised from 25 May to 10 June, in the run-up to a high-level event on 22 June. This event is hosted by the European Commission, back to back with the annual European Research & Innovation Days (23-24 June).
The goal of #ECCA2021 is to inspire adaptation action by showcasing solutions, exchanging knowledge, creating connections and strengthening the dialogue on how to act and at scale to adapt to climate change.
Resilience building and climate change adaptation are very high priorities on the EU agenda. As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission recently launched a new EU Adaptation Strategy, the European Climate Pact and Mission Adaptation, a cornerstone of the Horizon Europe Research Framework programme.
In the context of increasingly severe and frequent climate impacts, the ongoing pandemic and the economic recovery packages to build back better, the 5th ECCA conference will engage adaptation experts, researchers, policy-makers, local authorities, businesses and investors, NGOs, youth and education organisations to inspire and deliver climate action and be part of the collective European climate change adaptation effort.
From 25 May to 10 June 2021: a series of 9 webinars on critical climate change adaptation challenges gathering researchers, adaptation experts, policy makers and other stakeholders
