This afternoon session targets politicians and technical staff from municipalities, regions and national government attending the 2018 Covenant of Mayors Ceremony. It aims to raise awareness of the costs of climate-related impacts on local authorities, and inform on the financial and economic benefits of climate adaptation measures. A fine balance between on-the-ground-experience from municipalities on different stages of their adaptation strategies and academic expertise will provide an interesting overview into the topic of the economics of climate adaptation at local level.

The event will take place from 15:00 to 16:30 in Room JDE 53, European Committee of the Regions, Brussels.
