« MAKING CLIMATE SERVICES A REALITY IN EUROPE » – the Climate-fit.city conference
Making climate services a reality in Europe is a two-day conference that will bring together 100+ climate researchers, policymakers and industry experts as well as city and regional actors to showcase how climate data can serve both cities, regions, and businesses.
- Keeping our eyes peeled… Mediating and anticipating the effects of a changing climate is impossible without data that allow us to properly chart and predict climate impacts. That is why this conference wants to showcase novel climate data sets and tools.
- our feet dry… The increasingly common floods that Europe faces can have devastating effects. At the same time, Europe is experiencing lengthy droughts. We want to connect those looking for hydrological policy advice and concrete approaches with those offering solutions.
- and our heads cool. Increasingly common heatwaves have wide-ranging effects. How should densely populated areas keep their inhabitants save? How do we make infrastructure heat-proof? And what with regions that depend on summer tourism? We want to provide a platform for leading responses to heat-related threats.
What to expect?
The conference will focus on climate services for:
- Future Cities
- Disaster risk reduction
We will host presentations by climate services that mean business, an ice-breaking network event in our climate services marketplace, policy pitches for a resilient Europe, data matchmaking with experts who can offer key insights, and a site visit to a sustainable hub.
