Are our Adriatic coastal communities adapting to the rising climate risk? Let's talk about this with experts on October 21st, 2020  

After 21 months of research on climate change and adaptation measures in Adriatic regions, RESPONSe project partners organized an event to gather people interested in learning more about these topics and to share through discussion groups. 

"Are our Adriatic coastal communities adapting to the rising climate risk?": this is the title of the conference that will be held on October 21st, 2020, on Zoom platform.

The event is primarily organized for residents and public authorities of Adriatic coastal areas (both Italian and Croatian), but also for all other public interested in climate change mitigation and adaptation possibilities.

The goal of this event is to exchange the knowledge of the experts and experiences of local communities which will help to define action plans tailored by the specific characteristics of the observed area.

Project RESPONSe - Strategies to adapt to climate change in the Adriatic regions - is bilateral project between Italy and Croatia. The project aims to help local communities (Italian and Croatian) along the Adriatic coast in improving climate change monitoring and planning adaptation measures to the specific impacts of climate change. The project supports the Adriatic coastal municipalities by promoting smart governance of the risks arising from climate change.
