26th June -27th June 2017: Symposium on Climate Change Impacts in the Urban Environment: Mitigation and Adaptation Options, Mexico City, Mexico

Structure of the Event

The "Symposium on Climate Change Impacts in the Urban Environment: Mitigation and Adaptation Options” will be organised in two main strands:

Strand 1: the displays

Participants and organisations will be able to put-up poster displays describing their works and projects, and to distribute the relevant information to the participants. The poster displays will be the backbone of the event and will allow close, one-to-one contacts between the participants and the exhibitors.

Strand 2: the presentations
A set of presentations, divided into five main themes will be organised, distributed over parallel sessions dealing with some of the issues of strategic value in the field of climate change adaptation. These are: 

  • Session 1: Climate Change Adaptation, Resilience and Hazards (including droughts/extreme rainfall induced landslides/floods)
  • Session 2: Urban Landscape and Climate Change Mitigation 
  • Session 3: Territory and Society: vulnerability thresholds
  • Session 4: Information, Communication, Education and Training on Climate Change 
  • Session 5: Climate Change and Environmental Contingencies in Large Cities


The plenary and parallel sessions, as well as the social events, will provide participants with an outstanding opportunity to interact, network and learn about the latest ideas, projects and practices, mainstreaming climate change mitigation and adaptation in cities.
