SP 9.6 Local climate change adaptation: barriers and enablers for mainstreaming and implementation

Tuesday 10 May,  15.45 – 17.30, Diamond Room I

Knowledge and experience sharing is crucial for a successful local climate change adaptation. This session summarises bottom-up lessons from three years of information analysis based on 23 European cases. The first presentation sets the context and the common methodological frameworks used. The second provides an overview of economic models and tools used in the cases, while the third presents a number of innovative participatory tools and methods applied. The last presentation provides an overview of the policy implementation across cases. All presentations identify a set of recommendations to policy-makers and practitioners to better govern, monitor and implement with success local adaptation.
