This conference follows the successfull pioneer Climate Adaptation Futures Conference, co-hosted by Australia’s National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility and the CSIRO Climate Adaptation Flagship in Australia in 2010, and the Adaptation Futures 2012 International Conference on Climate Adaptation in Arizona in 2012. Inspired by these two conferences, the Third Conference will build on the community that comes together in Fortaleza and foster a connected, collaborative and creative international network of adaptation researchers, decision makers and interested citizens.
This conference is co-hosted and convened by the Earth System Science Center of the National Institute for Space Studies (CCST-INPE) from Brazil and by UNEP’s Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA): Adaptation Futures 2014 will be held in Fortaleza, Brazil during 12-16th May 2014. The conference will bring together researchers, policy makers, and practitioners from developed and developing countries to share insights into the challenges and opportunities that adaptation presents, and to share strategies for decision making from international to local scales.
The conference will be held at the facilities of the new Centro de Eventos do Ceará in the City of Fortaleza.
