CONNECTING CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION ACTION-HOLDERS
“Futureproofing Water and Climate Adaptation” is a webinar series focused on adaptation strategy, practices, and financing for deltas, urban deltas, small islands and coastal areas.
The series is designed to support the ambition of the International Panel on Deltas and Coastal Areas – to build capacity for effective adaptation planning, governance and finance – through online knowledge sharing and creation. This series of four webinars consists of sharing good practices, panel discussions and interactive community dialogues.
The first webinar, “Mobilizing Finance for Climate Adaptation in Deltas,” illustrates how deltaic countries leading in climate adaptation have used high-ambition decision-making and large-scale investment to prepare for future challenges.
The second webinar, “Resilient Delta Cities,” shares cases of good adaptation practices in urban deltaic regions.
The fourth webinar, “Integrated Coastal Zone Management for Climate Resilience” shares the need and complexity of integrated coastal zone management plans. Upon concluding this series of webinars, a community dialogue will be organized for participants and presenters to further discuss emergent and cutting-edge knowledge identified during the webinar series.
The final webinar, “The climate emergency on Small Islands – Challenges and Opportunities” highlights the unique climate adaptation challenges that small islands face and will share some hands-on opportunities that have proven successful to deal with these challenges.
