« back DMCSEE in Climate Action Exchange / ECCA21

7 June 2021

At the 5th European Climate Change Adaptation Conference – ECCA21, taking place in a form of online webinars between 25 May and 22 June 2021, the Drought Management Centre for SE Europe was invited to share its experience in tackling drought jointly as a region for well over a decade now. The session “Climate action exchange – sharing knowledge and experience of what works across the EU” showcased the work of DMCSEE along with ICPDR, International Climate Initiative and the Covenants of Mayors in their climate change adaptation actions, and let experiences be shared on what they found has worked across the region, what fields of work require further knowledge and how this work will be taken further.

A valuable part of the session was the regional focus of the discussion that followed the presentations, acknowledging the southeast part of Europe as one of the most vulnerable regions in Europe. It stimulated the debate and networking among the researchers, policy-makers, investors and practitioners on the importance of identifying workable solutions for adaptation to climate change, thus contributing to identify key messages to be raised at relevant fora and, in particular, during the ECCA2021 High-level event scheduled on 22 June 2021.

The session was recorded and can be found and watched at this link.

Other recorded sessions of the ECCA Conference are available on ECCA21 Youtube channel.
