RAMSES 3rd Stakeholder Dialogue

Understanding vulnerabilities, assessing economic gains and unlocking the transformative potential of climate adaptation in cities

Rome, Italy
The 3rd RAMSES Stakeholder Dialogue will take place in Rome (Italy), on 4 October 2016. This is the last in a series of three Stakeholder Dialogues organised by the project and represents a unique opportunity for cities and urban adaptation experts and practitioners to benefit from access to the interim results of RAMSES, share their experiences and provide feedback to help guide RAMSES research.

Key questions will be understanding climatic and socio-economic risks and vulnerabilities in cities, assessing the costs and the benefits of different adaptation measures, and exploiting the transformative potential of climate adaptation and unlocking co-benefits.

The input provided by RAMSES experts including the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research, the Tyndall Centre at Newcastle University, the London School of Economics and Tecnalia will be shared and discussed with stakeholders in a two-way dialogue. Attendance is free of charge.

Adapting to the effects of climate change

Support opportunities for cities and communities

The webinar, "Anpassung an die Folgen des Klimawandels: Unterstützungsangebote für Städte und Gemeinden" will introduce some of the opportunities for information and support especially relevant to the needs of German cities and municipalities. The primary emphasis will be on the online guideline "Klimalotse", a revised version of which has been available since Spring 2016. Following the presentations, there will be time for questions and exchange. Questions relating specifically to the revised 'Klimalotse' are welcome to be submitted in advance, so that these can be dealt with in greater depth as part of the webinar.

Participation is free. Please click here to register for the webinar. Please note that the webinar will be held in German. For further details (in German), please click here.

For more information or to submit questions specific to Klimalotse, please contact Julia Peleikis, Coordinator Sustainable Resources, Climate and Resilience, ICLEI Europe, at Julia.Peleikis@iclei.org.
