The sessions started with a brief introduction on climate change, followed by a presentation on how climate change considerations should be taken into account for major projects during the 2014-2020 programming period, and more specifically legal requirements. It continued with two sessions dedicated to climate change adaptation and climate change mitigation, both with practical examples and time for questions and answers.
The seminar was organised in close cooperation with The European Commission, both DG REGIO and DG CLIMA and EIB representatives. For more information and a tentative agenda please see the Workshop Description available on this page.
Following this event JASPERS plans to arrange further Networking Platform sessions going into more depth on both climate change adaptation vulnerability and risk assessment and climate change mitigation greenhouse gas emission calculations and carbon footprinting. As part of the Networking Platform activities JASPERS is particularly interested to share practical examples and experiences from Member States. If you are interested in these follow up events or have any experiences you would like to share please contact us.
