Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS)

To further drive and accelerate the urgent action needed, the Global Commission on Adaptation has launched its “Year of Action”, building on their report #AdaptNow and calling for transformative initiatives to be delivered at the Climate Adaptation Summit.

Supported by the Dutch Government, the “Year of Action” offers a platform for change culminating with the online Climate Adaptation Summit on January 25, 2021. The summit coincides with anchoring events held in cooperation with local partners in different places around the world. Key supporting events will be held in Groningen and Rotterdam as well as local, regional, national and international side events to advance the climate adaptation agenda.

The online Climate Adaptation Summit is hosted by the Netherlands on January 25, 2021. It will be a state of the art, climate neutral virtual conference, streamed worldwide over 24 hours with (online) anchoring events from cities around the world. It will build on the work of the Commission, delivering enhanced ambition, accelerated actions, and tangible solutions to the problems of a warming world. As the world aims to rebound and emerge better equipped from the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, CAS Online will also provide a unique opportunity for leaders to promote integrated efforts to improve resilience.
