Protecting public health from climate change and designing pathways towards more resilient cities

13 September 2017, 11:00 - 12:00

The 3rd Training Webinar of the European research project RAMSES on "Protecting public health from climate change and designing pathways towards more resilient cities" will take place on 13th September 2017 from 11:00-12:00 (CET).

The RAMSES project has produced a large number of resources that can be offered to cities and adaptation practitioners in a co-creative process between cities and researchers. This final training phase of the project is the last opportunity to get acquainted with the project's key findings and to interact directly with the experts.

The webinar "Protecting public health from climate change and designing pathways towards more resilient cities" is the final edition in a series of webinars and experts from Tecnalia and the World Health Organization will present their work on climate change, health and city resilience.

Maddalen Mendizabal, Tecnalia, Donostia/ San Sebastian (Spain) will present on "Transferring the pathway approach in new local adaptation processes: experiences and outlook from Antwerp" and James Creswick, World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe, Bonn (Germany) will present on "Climate change and Health: WHO perspectives."

Cities and Climate Conference 2017

19 - 21 September 2017
Potsdam, Germany

Cities are both focal points of human endeavour and major emitters, forming part of the global climate problem. While cities are characterised by an overwhelming complexity, they are also threatened by climate impacts. It is a challenge to develop cities into entities that consume fewer resources, emit less CO2 and pollution, are more resilient to the impacts of climate change, and which are more sustainable in general.

This conference will explore the latest advances in research and practice addressing climate change in cities, including issues of infrastructure, planning, governance, economics of adaptation, risk management, and their possible trade-offs and synergies with mitigation and sustainability objectives. Invited speakers will complement the conference programme.

“Cities and Climate Conference 2017” is the final conference of the RAMSES project and open to submissions from all relevant fields. RAMSES stands for Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for citiES.

Abstract submissions are now open. For the abstract submission form, click here.
