Adaptation without borders: strengthening cooperation to manage cross border climate risks
In our globalized world, the impacts of climate change in one place can create risks in another. As the EU strategy on adaptation makes clear, these impacts “have knock-on effects across borders and continents… even local climate impacts have regional or global repercussions”.
This event explored the implications of cross-border risks for adaptation planning at national, regional and global scales, calling for cross-country engagement and exchanges on adaptation to international climate risks.
