The year 2020 will focus internationally on climate adaptation actions. After this year, on 25 January 2021, world leaders will come together digitally for the Climate Adaptation Summit to conclude the Year of Action. As host cities of the Global Center on Adaptation, both Groningen and Rotterdam are organizing various activities, including a Climate Adaptation Week (19-25 January 2021), in the run-up to the Climate Adaptation Summit.
Knowledge-based and solutions-focused
Initiated by the Akkoord of Groningen and the Global Center on Adaptation, in cooperation with the Nationaal Programma Groningen, the week aims to generate attention for accelerating climate adaptation among companies, scientists, residents, education and governments. In addition, Groningen also presents itself as a knowledge-based and solutions-focused hub for climate adaptation.
