Climate change presents a wide range of serious risks, but also offers the opportunity to drive forward innovative adaptation actions. Vulnerability can be reduced by building strong, equitable, resilient societies, protecting natural capital and deploying cost-effective nature-based solutions. Well-designed climate adaptation actions can have wider beneficts for health, economy and biodiversity, and can even have synergies with climate mitigation. ECCA 2017 explored these opportunities and helped to move them from theory to practice. Stay tuned for more news about ECCA 2019!
