Covenant of Mayors webinar - Implementing a pathway approach for climate change adaptation at the local level
11 December 2017 10:00 - 11:45
(online), Belgium

Planning for adaptation and selecting the right measures to implement while coping with a wide range of uncertainties is a challenge for many Covenant of Mayors signatories. The goal of this webinar is to tackle this issue.

Has your city already defined or is in the process of defining and assessing options for adaptation measures? At the same time, you are not sure which ones to implement and in which order? And you would like to find out which options to choose for which (uncertain) future climate scenario? Then this webinar is for you.

The session will focus on assessing adaptation options and familiarise you in particular with the so-called adaptation pathway approach. This approach helps to prioritise adaptation options and assemble them in pathways: Information gathered during the phase of the risk and vulnerability assessment is used to evaluate the effectiveness of different adaptation options and considered together with the timing to assemble pathways of responses that will tackle previously defined climatic thresholds.

Sounds complex? You will be guided through the session by experts from research institutes, who will explain how you can make use of their research findings in your local authority. Moreover, representatives from Covenant of Mayors signatories will give details on how they have implemented this approach as part of their Covenant of Mayors journey and provide you with hints and lessons learned. Extensive Q&A sessions will allow for ample space for your questions.
