European Climate Change Adaptation 2023

19 - 23 June 2023

Actionable Knowledge for a Climate Resilient Europe

The 6th European Climate Change Adaptation (ECCA) Conference takes place from 19 to 21 June 2023, and will be held in Dublin, Ireland. The conference will gather Europe’s leading climate researchers who are using trusted data to develop cutting-edge climate action tools, decision-support platforms and prototype climate services for adapting to the climate challenges they are tasked with addressing. Participants will have an opportunity to share actual examples of the challenges and potential solutions.

The conference will focus on the following six thematic topics:

  • Stepping Up Climate Action: Support Through Climate Platforms and Services
  • Adaptation Responses to Sea Level Rise and Coastal Change
  • Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation
  • Preparing for More Frequent and Severe Climate Extremes
  • Reframing Societal Transformation by Challenging Underlying Assumptions
  • Climate and Social Resilience of Future Energy Infrastructure and Systems.

Since the last ECCA conference in May and June 2021, Europe experienced the warmest summer on record, accompanied by severe floods in western Europe and dry conditions in the Mediterranean. In 2022, even more records were broken in Europe, with a record high temperature in Ireland in July 2022, for example. Besides necessary mitigation measures, adaptation actions contribute to recovery, resilience, climate change mitigation, biodiversity conservation and restoration, citizen safety, wellbeing, and financial security. The goal of the conference, among the goals of the previous ECCA editions, is to inspire adaptation by showcasing solutions, exchanging knowledge, creating connections, and encouraging dialogue on how to act more and faster at every level.
