3rd - 5th July 2018: International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe, Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Aims

Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of climate change adaptation in Eastern Europe, the aims of the “International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe” are as follows: 

  • I.   to provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, government agencies and enterprises from the region with an opportunity to  display and present their works in the field of climate change adaptation;
  • II.  to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of climate change adaptation projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice across the region;
  • III.  to discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, which aim to show how  climate resilience may be enhanced in practice;
  • IV.  to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, the book “Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe: “Managing risks and building resilience to climate change” will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be a further volume of the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer, which since its creation in 2008 has become the  world´s leading book series on climate change management. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.

Profile of Participants

Delegates attending the “International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaption in Eastern Europe” will come from a cross-sectoral range of areas. These are:

  • 1. members of NGOs working with climate change;
  • 2. researchers at universities and research centres;
  • 3. farmers´ associations and  organisations;
  • 4. representatives from companies; 
  • 5. representatives from UN and national development and aid agencies working with climate change adaptation and funding/ executing projects on the ground;
  • 6. members of social movements;
  • 7. project officers and consultants;
  • 8. other people interested in the topic.

The participation of doctoral students is warmly encouraged and supervisors/advisers are kindly requested to facilitate their participation. The sort of international exposure and the rich content of this Symposium will be beneficial to their training and to their future careers.

It is believed that this wide range of participants will help to outline the need for and the usefulness of integrated approaches towards climate change adaptation and drought resilience in Africa, and hence contribute to the further consolidation of this thematic area.
