Local Climate Change Adaptation capacity building
Organised by the Regional Environmental Center (REC), this event aims to increase the knowledge and understanding on the exposure of impacts of climate change at local levels.
Representatives from local government in Hungary, Norway and Iceland will present on how local communication have been affected by climate change. The various projects developed through the Local Climate Change Adaptation capacity building programme provide a good basis for exploring adaptation options and strengthen climate resilience by learning about local impacts and assessing community vulnerabilities.
Through this programme, stakeholders and local-level decision makers have been mobilized and empowered to develop and implement local strategies, based on scientific evidences and data in order to reduce and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
