Implementing a pathway approach for climate change adaptation at the local level
from 10:00 - 11:45 CET
Planning for adaptation and selecting the right measures to implement while coping with a wide range of uncertainties is a challenge for many Covenant of Mayors local authorities. The goal of this webinar, organised by Climate Alliance within the framework of the Covenant of Mayors, is to tackle this issue.
The session will focus on assessing adaptation options and familiarise you in particular with the so-called adaptation pathway approach. This approach helps to prioritise adaptation options and assemble them in pathways: Information gathered during the phase of the risk and vulnerability assessment is used to evaluate the effectiveness of different adaptation options and considered together with the timing to assemble pathways of responses that will tackle previously defined climatic thresholds.
