The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

European Climate Change Adaptation Conference’s Business Day

The 3rd European Climate Change Adaptation (ECCA) Conference will be taking place 5-9 June in Glasgow. This year's theme is "Our Climate Ready Future." Its goal is to inspire and enable people to work together to discover and deliver positive climate adaptation solutions that can strengthen society, revitalise local economies and enhance the environment. ECCA 2017 is held in Europe but the focus is global, with presenters from 48 countries on five continents. The packed programme features three plenary sessions, 85 parallel sessions, a poster drinks reception, a Ceilidh and a film screening.

This year, for the first time, there is a special Business and Innovation programme to be run in parallel with the first two days of the conference. On Tuesday 6th June 2017, The ECCA Business Day will provide a unique setting to learn about what it takes to prepare business for a changing climate. Organizers are offering a reduced one-day rate for the Business Day, but tickets are selling out fast.

When: 5-9 June 2017

Organizers are bringing together the people who will deliver action on the ground – from business, industry, NGOs, local government and communities – to share knowledge, ideas and experience with leading researchers and policymakers. Set in the cultural city of Glasgow, at the heart of a city-region that is putting climate adaptation and climate justice at the core of decision making, ECCA 2017 offers ten inspiring excursions including opportunities to visit innovative local adaptation projects and share experience of how climate adaptation can work in practice.
