|Tuesday 10 May, 15.45 – 17.30, Goudriaan Room I|
Since the Lisbon Treaty and the Europe 2020 strategy, there has been much attention for territorial cohesion within the European Union. Through territorial cohesion the European Union wishes to promote a polycentric territorial integration of places where people live. Adaptation to climate change is a vital challenge in EU territorial development. During this round table, Directors-General of various EU member states and the European Commission will exchange experiences and best practices in the preparation and implementation of their climate adaptation strategies, and explore whether the inclusion of adaptation strategies in the work on the Territorial Agenda could be of added value.
