The Netherlands to host first online Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) on 25 and 26 January 2021- and you are invited!

3 OCT 2020

 

The world urgently needs to enhance its ambitions and take bold action to tackle the climate emergency. Recognising this, the Netherlands government will host an online international Climate Adaptation Summit on 25 and 26 January 2021, the first ever dedicated platform of global leaders aimed at firmly placing the world on a pathway to accelerated adaptation and resilience.

During the high-level opening session, leaders from around the world will join Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Mark Rutte, and other members of the Dutch government, in order to launch a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda. This Agenda will set out practical climate solutions and plans up to 2030.

Over the course of 24 hours, governments, companies, scientists, NGOs and young people worldwide will be able to participate in a range of events streamed from time zones across the globe.

The aim of CAS 2021 is to draw attention to the effects of climate change and to underscore the need for the world to change with it, so that we are better able to manage phenomena such as extreme rainfall, drought, heatwaves, and sea level rise.

We invite you to register to attend this first-of-its-kind event, and join in the effort to create a more resilient future for all. Register here.
