Webinar: Exploring the use of foresight methods in climate resilience

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): PLAtform for Climate Adaptation and Risk reDuction (PLACARD)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 30 May 2018 Location: Online event

This webinar will showcase the potential of foresight methods in increasing climate resilience across Europe. The presentations and discussion will reflect on the recent European Commission White Paper on the Future of Europe.

The webinar will run on Wednesday 30 May 2018 at 10:30 – 12:00 CEST and is open to all.

Presentations

  • The 5 futures for Europe and the future of climate action: Reflections and scenarios for the EU27 – Jonathan Gaventa, Director, E3G Brussels Office
  • Potential future climate in terms of climatic hazards and impacts expected for Europe

Discussion

The discussion will focus on how foresight techniques can inform:

  • Revision of the EU Adaptation Strategy in 2019
  • Development and implementation of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism
  • Development of the FP9 focusing on knowledge gaps and needs.

We’ll be asking questions such as:

What are the challenges for a climate-resilient Europe?

  • What are the main drivers of climate vulnerability that should be considered for the 5 Futures for Europe?
  • What are the main types of policy options to increase the resilience to climate change and weather-related extremes for the 5 Futures?

Who are the main CCA & DRR actors that should be involved?

  • At European level
  • At national and sub-national level
  • Other levels, for example private sector, civil society, other organised groups

Background

This webinar is part of a larger research and practice process on the use of foresight methods (PLACARD Foresight promotion report – Foresight for policy & decision-makers). The discussions will support development of a broader workshop on forward-looking (foresight) activities in late 2019: foresight methods will be used to support the three policy-science instruments, and design pathways of how they would play out in a world that ‘mixes’ the European Commission white paper's 5 Futures with different climate scenarios.
