Building resilience to climate change: developing regional-urban approaches

Green Week Partner Event
23 May 2018
Brussels, Belgium
House of Dutch Provinces, Trierstraat 59 – 61 rue d e Trèves

Adapting to climate change is a major challenge that cuts across sectors and levels of government: from transnational to regional and local. Cities and regions must work together if they are to develop effective strategies to address their local vulnerabilities and boost resilience.

This half-day seminar introduces transferable best practices and scalable approaches on how cities and regions can together develop policies and actions to address risks, create resilient infrastructures, and foster a better quality of life for their communities. Among others, this event will address the following questions:

  • How can cities and regions work together to manage climate-related risks, foster resilience and ultimately boost local sustainable development?

  • What are the roles and competences of different players at the local, regional, national and EU level. How can engagement of communities be ensured?

  • What obstacles exist (e.g. legislative and financial) to making infrastructure more resilient?
