Stepping up international action for climate resilience

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): European Commission (EC)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 26 Feb 2021 Location: Online event

Adaptation is a cross-cutting issue in the external action of the EU and of the Member States, spanning development cooperation, migration or security. Strengthening international collaboration for climate resilience is a key priority for the EU. Adaptation efforts need to be effectively targeted to reach the most exposed, vulnerable, conflict- prone or marginalised communities, leaving no one and no place behind.

The new EU Adaptation Strategy will promote regional approaches, with a focus on adaptation in Africa and Small Island Developing States. The Strategy will further advance a Green Agenda for Western Balkans and strong green partnerships with the EU Neighbourhood. Insights form the ongoing research within two EU H2020 projects RECEIPT and CASCADES will set the stage for in-depth discussion on how remote climate change impacts may affect the resilience in Europe.
