    Training for local politicians on climate adaptation

    room VM 3 European Committee of the Regions 2, rue Van Maerlant Brussels
    Organiser: Supporters



    Climate adaptation measures can require substantial investment that can only be secured if there is political buy-in. This session organised by EUROCITIES in the framework of the EU Urban Agenda partnership on climate adaptation, building on a first edition in May 2019, consists in a training designed specifically for local politicians to raise their awareness of adaptation issues.


    The training will:

    • Provide general information on what adaptation means for cities

    • Raise awareness of the costs of inaction

    • Inform about the risks of maladaptation

    • Provide knowledge of the co-benefits of adaptation actions.


    The session targets local politicians (Mayors, Deputy Mayors, elected Councillors) from all over Europe.
