The European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA) 2015 is the second of its kind, following the first ECCA held in Hamburg 2013 which was attended by more than 700 participants.
It is an initiative of a number of major European research projects and other stakeholders. The conference will cover a broad range of issues related to climate change adaptation and follows international adaptation conferences in Australia (Gold Coast, Queensland) in 2010 and in the United States (Tucson, Arizona) in 2012. This European conference will place a greater emphasis on understanding and assessing adaptation in action under the theme: “Integrating climate adaptation action in science, policy, practitioners and business”.
