Open European Day

at Bonn Resilient Cities
5 July 2016
Bonn, Germany
Gustav-Stresemann-Institut e.V. (GSI), Langer Grabenweg 68, D-53175
EEA and ICLEI Europe join forces again this year to organise the 3rd Open European Day (OED) back-to-back with the Bonn Resilient Cities Conference.

Some of the key themes will include:

- Climate services, involving the production, transfer and use of climate knowledge, but also tools, methods and instruments to enable climate-informed decision-making. Climate services are increasingly important to support cities in becoming climate-resilient.
- Nature-based solutions, providing numerous benefits to cities and their inhabitants, if planned correctly.
- Mainstreaming adaptation by integrating different local planning processes and exploiting co-benefits and opportunities for combining climate change mitigation and adaptation measures.

Financing adaptation to make good adaptation solutions viable and create opportunities for change in cities will be reflected upon in the sessions and as a cross-cutting theme throughout the event.

Resilient Cities 2016

Annual Global Forum on Urban Resilience & Adaptation
6 - 8 July 2016
Bonn, Germany
Gustav-Stresemann-Institut e.V. (GSI), Langer Grabenweg 68, D-53175, Bonn, Germany
Resilient Cities - The Annual Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation - is the global platform for urban resilience and climate change adaptation, hosted every year in Bonn.

In 2010 ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, the World Mayors Council on Climate Change and the City of Bonn, Germany launched Resilient Cities, the first World Congress on Cities and Adaptation to Climate Change (in 2012 renamed as Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation). More than 500 participants and beyond 30 partners each year helped make Resilient Cities a milestone event connecting local government leaders and climate adaptation experts to discuss adaptation challenges facing urban environments around the globe.

The congress offers a number of sessions and events on a wide variety of topics amongst which were urban risk, resilient urban logistics, financing the resilient city, urban agriculture and food, smart infrastructure and many more.

Resilient Cities also supports the annual Bonn Declaration of Mayors – written by local leaders during the Mayors Adaptation Forum, organized with the World Mayors Council on Climate Change.
