SP 10.3 Adaptive value chains: addressing the challenges of cross-sectoral adaptation

Wednesday 11 May, 13.30 – 15.15, Penn Room I

Global value chains are facing increasing risks posed by climate change and associated climate variability. The challenge of adapting to overcome these risks is faced not only by local businesses, but by the network of businesses that deliver to global markets. Practitioners and scientists come together in this session to discuss and debate challenges and opportunities for adapting value chains. It will raise challenges of boundary spanning adaptation – across sectors, across borders and across futures. Case studies will be presented and discussed.
