Climate-ADAPT Event

Boosting adaptation to climate change: National and EU level knowledge and tools for Romania

Promoting Climate-ADAPT in Romania

The European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate-ADAPT) is a partnership between the European Commission's Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA) and the European Environment Agency (EEA). Its main objectives are to share the knowledge base and practical implementation experiences in the field of climate change adaptation, to assist an effective uptake of this knowledge by decision makers, and to contribute to a greater level of coordination among the relevant sectoral policies and different institutional levels. It is a key established reference tool and knowledge resource in Europe, Under the new EU Adaptation Strategy, it will be further expanded with new knowledge components to support better informed decision-making for a more climate-resilient Europe.

Co-organised with the Romanian Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests, the webinar offers an overview of available adaptation knowledge, guidance, and tools at national and EU level platforms such as climate data, an urban adaptation support tool, and case studies. The webinar also provides a reflection on how the available information is being used and which knowledge gaps need to be addressed at EU and the country level.

The target audience of the webinar are current and potential new users and information providers of Climate-ADAPT in Romania, i.e., governmental decision-makers as well as the organisations supporting them in the development, implementation, and evaluation of climate change adaptation strategies, plans and actions at all governance levels in Romania. Beyond that, all other actors involved in adaptation to climate change in Romania are welcome to participate in the webinar (including businesses and non-governmental organisations, practitioners, and other interested citizens).

The webinar will be held in English and Romanian. A Romanian interpretation service for the English parts will be available.

Read here the story of the fictional character Alexandru, a Romanian consultant who helps governmental organisations design adaptation solutions for the agriculture sector. He is looking for solutions to cope with the impacts of floods, which challenge the agriculture and forestry sectors in the southern Romanian part of the Danube Region. His story shows how he uses Climate-ADAPT in a basic way by following clear options, to find the information he is looking for.
