The 6th European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA) will be held from 19-21 June 2023, in Dublin, Ireland. The conference will gather Europe’s leading climate researchers who are using trusted data to develop cutting-edge climate action tools, decision-support platforms and prototype climate services for adapting to the climate challenges they are tasked with addressing. Participants will have an opportunity to share actual examples of the challenges and potential solutions.
ECCA 2023 is organized by the Joint Programme Initiative “Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe” (JPI Climate), together with the MAGICA project, supported by the European Commission. The event will be held in person over two days for up to 500 people with live streaming of all plenary sessions and interactive hybrid formats.
The conference will focus on the following six thematic topics:
- Stepping Up Climate Action: Support Through Climate Platforms and Services
- Adaptation Responses to Sea Level Rise and Coastal Change
- Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation
- Preparing for More Frequent and Severe Climate Extremes
- Reframing Societal Transformation by Challenging Underlying Assumptions
- Climate and Social Resilience of Future Energy Infrastructure and Systems.
The goal of the ECCA Conference, added to those of previous editions, is to inspire adaptation by showcasing solutions, exchanging knowledge, creating connections, and encouraging dialogue on how to act further and faster at every level.
