Adaptation Futures 2018

18-05-2018 to 21-05-2018, Cape Town, South Africa

Adaptation Futures is the world's premier conference on climate change adaptation, which gathers more than 1000 scientists, practitioners, business leaders and policymakers from around the world to connect, learn and inspire.

Themes for this year's conference include the intersection between adaptation and development, as well as the interplay between climate adaptation and other 21st century challenges. Another main focus is South-South and South-North collaboration, knowledge co-production and learning: how to measure adaptation, how to leverage the latest knowledge to come out of academia and how to best capture and share lessons learned from ongoing efforts? Attention will also be paid to financing for adaptation.

Adaptation Futures coincides with the EU Climate Diplomacy Week. The EU delegation in South Africa will be represented at the conference by a pavillion in the Expo area. REEEP and UNIDO will be present at this pavilion, providing materials and presentations on the Climate Change, Clean Energy and Urban Waterworks project. We hope to see you there!
