Adaptation Research meets Adaptation Decision-Making
The Conference seeks to identify common ground between adaptation research and adaptation decision-making by comparing experiences, reporting new insights and revealing key gaps in knowledge. Some of the other questions being asked include:
In some respects, adaptation policy seems to be outpacing research, with strategies being designed and questions asked for which answers, or even methods of obtaining answers, are not yet available. On the other hand, research on some aspects of climate change adaptation has developed rapidly in recent years, and this new knowledge could be of great benefit in offering solutions for practical adaptation challenges. These are two persuasive reasons for wishing to bring adaptation decision-makers and researchers together in such a forum. A third reason is to promote an effective international and multi-disciplinary exchange of ideas on adaptation to climate change, drawing extra inspiration from the attractive Nordic setting and warm local hospitality.
Who should attend?
The Conference is open to scholars and practitioners interested in climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation. Invitations are extended to researchers across a range of disciplines, public and private decision-makers, regional and local planners, professionals with a background in risk management as well as representatives of NGOs and international organizations. There will be an emphasis in some sessions on adaptation in a Nordic setting, but participation and experiences from outside the region are also strongly encouraged.
