A calendar of international conferences, workshops, seminars, and all kinds of event related to Climateurope activities and topics: Climate Services, Climate Observation, and Earth-System modeling
Klaus Töpfer speaks in Augsburg about the Anthropoean period. The term was introduced to the environmental debate in 2000 by atmospheric engineer and Nobel Prize winner Paul J. Crutzen and biologist Eugene F. Stoermer.
The 13th REHVA World Congress, CLIMA 2019, will be held from 26th till 29th of May 2019 in Bucharest, Romania.
Under the congress theme Built environment facing climate change, the four main topics of the 13th CLIMA Congress will highlight discussions around the capacity of new and existing refurbished buildings, and HVAC&S&R technical systems to mitigate climate change in an energy efficient manner while respecting the comfort and security requirements of occupants:
• Modern HVAC&R&S Technology and Indoor Environment Quality
• High Energy Performance and Sustainable Buildings
• Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for the Intelligent Building Management
• Sustainable Urbanization and Energy System Integration.
Registration ends on May 20 at midnight for the 2019 Understanding Risk (UR) Caribbean Conference!
Slated for May 27 – May 31 in Barbados, UR Caribbean will bring together representatives of government ministries and national disaster management agencies, disaster risk management practitioners, urban planners, insurance industry stakeholders, private sector organizations, academia, multilateral development banks, regional partners and donors to:
Identify gaps and needs that exist in disaster risk information
Obtain in-depth training in areas such as fiscal resilience, coastal protection, risk analytics & more
Share knowledge and best practices from analyses, studies, projects and business practices
Experience innovations from global partners that can facilitate disaster risk management processes
UR Caribbean is organized by the World Bank’s Caribbean Disaster Risk Management team, in partnership with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the European Union (EU), and will be hosted by the Government of Barbados.
Core themes include:
Risk analytics and communication | Physical resilience | Fiscal resilience | Urban resilience | Coastal protection | Hydromet and early warning systems | Community engagement and emergency preparedness
Registration is open and free, but interested persons must register in order to attend.
Climate change is considered by many to be the challenge of the 21st century. The urgency and severity of this challenge call for integrated ways of looking at responses to reduce the risks associated with environmental and social stressors, and ensure a secure future for humans and ecosystems. Adapting to climate change requires a coordinated and synergistic approach from a diverse range of actors across sectors, as well as questioning assumptions about the drivers of risk, vulnerability and environmental change.
A cooperative approach allows us to improve learning and knowledge exchange in order to deliver optimal solutions. Interaction and collaboration with the disaster risk reduction (DRR) community is a critical element in improving climate change adaptation (CCA), as the communities share similar goals and activities. Bringing the two groups together is particularly important in relation to the goals and targets of the three major international agreements: Paris, Sendai Framework for DRR and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The 4th ECCA builds on past conferences that took place in Hamburg (2013), Copenhagen (2015) and Glasgow (2017), and aims to:
- Provide a space that facilitates a dialogue among a diverse range of actors from academia, government, business and community on the multiple aspects of climate change adaptation
- Promote the communication and knowledge exchange between researchers, policymakers and practitioners
- Find integrated solutions and inspire action
- Support ongoing efforts to enhance the coherence and synergy between CCA and DRR research, policy and practice
- Discuss key challenges and solutions in cities
- Provide a stage for presenting European’s excellence on Research & Innovation for CCA
- Inform the next European funding framework for Research & Innovation
The biennial European Climate Change Adaptation conference is convened by EU-funded projects on behalf of the European Commission.
In this webinar, Christa Anderson, World Wildlife Foundation, Robin Chazdon, University of Connecticut, and James Mulligan, World Resources Institute, will review the role forests play in the carbon removal portfolio as well as grapple with the social, legal, ethical, and political questions raised by afforestation and reforestation.”
Commission for Water Sustainability of the International Geographical Union (IGU) invites you to the conference Water sustainability in a changing world, 11th – 14th June 2019, in Bucharest, Romania. Ongoing global climate change, population growth, urban sprawl, land use modification and rapid development of economic activities are some of the most relevant facets of the transformations affecting our planet in the last decades, with significant impacts on water resources. These changes have led to alterations of the quantitative, qualitative and ecological features of the aquatic environment, threatening the sustainability of water resources. Meanwhile, extreme hydrological events, which appear to have increased in frequency and magnitude, have caused noteworthy human, economic and environmental damages, sometimes catastrophic.
AMOS is pleased to announce that the AMOS Annual Meeting will be combined with an International Conference on Tropical Meteorology and Oceanography (AMOS-ICTMO 2019). This event will take place at the Darwin Convention Centre from 11-15 June 2019, Darwin Australia.
