The “2nd Latin American Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation” will focus on “Fostering Climate Resilience in Latin America, meaning that it will serve the purpose of showcasing experiences from research, field projects and best practice to foster climate change adaptation among countries in the region, which may be useful or implemented elsewhere. The event will pay a special emphasis to the need to foster climate change resilience, a key topic in Latin America.
Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of climate change adaptation in the Latin American region, the aims of the “2nd Latin American Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation” are as follows:
I. Provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, government agencies and enterprises from Latin America with an opportunity to display and present their works in the field of climate change adaptation;
II. Foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of climate change adaptation projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice across the region;
III. Discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, which aim to show how climate change adaptation may be implemented in practice;
IV. Network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.
Finally yet importantly, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, the book “Integrating Climate Change Adaptation and Sustainable Development in in Latin America” will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be a further volume of the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer, which, since its creation in 2008, has become the world´s leading book series on climate change management. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.
