The 5th European Climate Change Adaptation conference ECCA 2021, will take place on 22 June. The high-level event, hosted by the European Commission, will take place back to back with the annual European Research & Innovation Days (23-24 June).
2021 is the year of climate adaptation. ECCA 2021 comes at the right time, after the first global Climate Adaptation Summit in January 2021, and before the COP 26 in Glasgow in November 2021. It will turn the spotlight on the pressing need to accelerate the transfer of knowledge from R&I to policies and practices, including societal transformation an behavioural change, in order to increase resilience in Europe and beyond, in a context of rising climate risks.
