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

Structure of the Event

The International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe will be organised around two main strands: 

Strand 1: the poster displays 
Participating and organisations will be able to put-up posters describing their works and projects and to distribute the relevant information to the participants. The posters 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 three 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 and adaptation possibilities (agriculture, water resources, forestry, tourism, health, biodiversity)
  • Session 2 – Projected climate change in Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans
  • Session 3 – Disaster risk reduction
  • Session 4 – Climate change and the housing sector
  • Session 5 – Resilience in the spatial planning, land use and environmental protection
  • Session 6 – Information, Communication, Education and Training 

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 adaptation in Eastern Europe.
