This event is hosted by the European Commission, back to back with the annual European Research & Innovation Days (23-24 June).
2021 is the year of climate adaptation. ECCA 2021 comes at the right time, after the first global Climate Adaptation Summit in January 2021, and before the COP 26 in Glasgow in November 2021. It will turn the spotlight on the pressing need to accelerate the transfer of knowledge from R&I to policies and practices, including societal transformation and behavioural change, in order to increase resilience in Europe and beyond, in the context of rising climate risks.
Adaptation actions can help boost recovery, resilience, climate change mitigation, biodiversity conservation and restoration, job creation, citizen safety, social inclusion, wellbeing, and financial security. The goal of the conference is to inspire adaptation by showcasing solutions, exchanging knowledge, creating connections, and encouraging dialogue on how to act more and faster at every level.

ECCA 2021 is a virtual event; the high-level conference (22 June) will be preceded by a webinar series on pressing climate change adaptation challenges from 25 May to 10 June.
