4th Conference on adaptation to climate change in developing countries
On Thursday 25 November 2010 the HIER Climate Campaign and the NCDO are organising a conference on adaptation to climate change in developing countries. The 4th Conference on Adaptation to Climate Change in Developing Countries will take place in The Hague, the Netherlands.
The first two years, in 2007 and 2008, several Dutch humanitarian and development NGOs organised a conference on adaptation to climate change in developing countries. Goal of the conferences was to share experiences on adaptation of NGO practitioners, scientists, government officials and companies. By workshops focussing on themes (e.g. water, health, disasters) and regions (e.g. Africa, South-East Asia) we explored the impacts and consequences of climate change for developing countries.
Last year, with Copenhagen just one and a half week away, we focussed on both political issues as on the practice of adaptation in developing countries. This year, in 2010, just four day before the next round of COP negotiations start in Cancún, Mexico, we’ll do the same.
The full program and all other relevant information can be found at: www.hier.nu/adaptatie which is also the place for registration.
