European cities are facing increasing climate related disasters. Under high-end scenarios risks may increase considerably. Local, regional and national governments must cooperate to build resilience to border-transcending challenges: standardized, transferable methods are crucial for this. Political representatives of European cities will deliver combined policy recommendations arising from participation in European-funded research into strategic resilience planning in European cities, including discussion of standardized methods for climate adaptation strategies, and urban resilience experts will demonstrate the state of the art in the field.
ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability will discuss future perspectives for holistic standardized approaches to city adaptation and resilience.
Speakers will include Wolfgang Teubner, Regional Director Europe, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability.
