International Conference towards Climate adapted and resilient regions (CLARR 2014)

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis

Dealing with climate change impacts is one of the great challenges of the 21st century and its importance is only just being discovered. The challenges arise from uncertainties in climate change and its impacts, from the long time-horizon, from regionally widely varying vulnerabilities, and from a lack in public awareness. Notwithstanding the challenges of adapting to climate change, the long time horizon and the inherent uncertainties suggest to adopt a wider frame of reference for adaptation.
