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. Are you a local politician? Do you want to take action on climate change for your city? Do not miss this opportunity and register now (registrations close September 27)!
The training will take place in Brussels in the European Committee of the Regions on 9 October 2019 from 11:30 to 13:00, during the European Week of Regions and Cities.
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.
EUROCITIES is happy to confirm that energy and climate expert Jean-Marc Jancovici will be one of this session's speakers.
