Climate-ADAPT Event

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

Promoting Climate-ADAPT in Slovenia

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 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 already 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 Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning in Slovenia, the webinar offers an overview of available adaptation knowledge, guidance, and tools at national and EU level knowledge platforms such as climate data, an urban adaptation support tool, and case studies. The webinar also reflects on how the available information is being used and which knowledge gaps need to be addressed at the EU and the country level.

The target audience of the webinar are current and potential new users and information providers of Climate-ADAPT in Slovenia, 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 Slovenia. Beyond that other actors involved in adaptation to climate change in Slovenia 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. An automatic translation in Slovenian will be available.

Read here the story of Ana, a national governmental expert preparing advice for adaptation policy making in Slovenia. Ana is looking for information to guide Slovenian municipalities in developing local adaptation strategies, policies and plans to address climate change, focussing on heatwaves, droughts and flood impacts. Her story shows how she uses Climate-ADAPT in a basic way by following clear steps, to find the information she is looking for.
