Towards Climate Adapted and Resilient Regions (CLARR 2014)

From 24 – 25 February 2014, the transdisciplinary project ‘nordwest2050’ organises the International Conference on Regional Climate Adaptation and Resilience ‘Towards Climate Adapted and Resilient Regions’ (CLARR 2014)  in Bremen, Germany. The conference seeks to foster an exchange between the discourses on resilience and adaptation to climate impacts. Based on experience and findings from various actors involved (science, economy, politics and public administration) we arrange this conference to discuss regional methods and strategies as pathways to a resilient future. Therefore, a second stream of the conference will set the focus on regional adaption strategies and innovative solutions.

The scientific sessions will be arranged around four main topics:
+ Analysing impacts
+ Assessing vulnerabilities
+ Designing and testing solutions for climate adaptation and resilience
+ Implementing climate adaptation and paths to a resilient future

The conference is open to all relevant contributions. Especially contributions on successful socio-economic and socio-technical innovations from coastal regions (call for papers will follow soon on our website) are sought.
Not only scientists are invited to contribute, but also Business representatives – Public administrators – Politicians (local, regional and national) and Representatives from Non-governmental organizations.
