The European Commission will release the new and more ambitious EU Adaptation Strategy on February 24th, 2021. The Strategy complements the proposed European Climate Law and sets to foster adaptive capacity and socially-just transformations to climate-resilient society, fully adapted to the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
On behalf of the European Commission, DG CLIMA, the Foundation Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change organises an Event (on February 25-26th) accompanying the adoption of the new EU Adaptation Strategy with the aim of mobilising the climate adaptation community and providing forum for reflecting on the role of science and innovation in general, and how climate adaptation community can contribute to meeting the goals of the Strategy.
EIT Climate-KIC Chief Executive Officer, Kirsten Dunlop, will speak at the High-Level Science Policy Panel of the launch of the EU Adaptation Strategy on Friday, February 26th, 16.15 – 18.00 CET
