Climate adaptation measures can require substantial investment that can only be secured if there is political buy-in. This session organised by EUROCITIES in the framework of the EU Urban Agenda partnership on climate adaptation, building on a first edition in May 2019, consists in a training designed specifically for local politicians to raise their awareness of adaptation issues.
The training will:
Provide general information on what adaptation means for cities
Raise awareness of the costs of inaction
Inform about the risks of maladaptation
Provide knowledge of the co-benefits of adaptation actions.
The session targets local politicians (Mayors, Deputy Mayors, elected Councillors) from all over Europe.
This event is part of the European Week of Cities and Regions
