Webinar - Implementing a pathway approach for climate change adaptation at the local level

11 December 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Planning for adaptation and selecting the right measures to implement while coping with a wide range of uncertainties is a challenge for many Covenant of Mayors signatories.

The goal of this webinar is to tackle this issue. Has your city already defined or is in the process of defining and assessing options for adaptation measures? At the same time, you are not sure which ones to implement and in which order?

And you would like to find out which options to choose for which (uncertain) future climate scenario? Then this webinar is for you.

The session will focus on assessing adaptation options and familiarise you in particular with the so-called adaptation pathway approach. This approach helps to prioritise adaptation options and assemble them in pathways: Information gathered during the phase of the risk and vulnerability assessment is used to evaluate the effectiveness of different adaptation options and considered together with the timing to assemble pathways of responses that will tackle previously defined climatic thresholds.

Sounds complex? You will be guided through the session by experts from research institutes, who will explain how you can make use of their research findings in your local authority. Moreover, representatives from Covenant of Mayors signatories will give details on how they have implemented this approach as part of their Covenant of Mayors journey and provide you with hints and lessons learned. Extensive Q&A sessions will allow for ample space for your questions.

2017 is the tenth anniversary of the SET Plan, the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan that aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies. This conference will review the progress achieved over the past decade in the transition to a low carbon, innovative energy future and the SET Plan's key role as the technology pillar of EU's energy research and innovation policy. It will focus on:

  • The implementation process of the Energy Union strategy, with a special focus on its Research and Innovation dimension and the current state of negotiations under the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" package
  • The role of innovative low-carbon technologies in boosting European competitiveness, progress in developing new technologies and smart energy systems for efficient use of energy, and the growing share of renewables in the primary energy consumption of EU member states
  • Current trends in electro-mobility, the safe use of nuclear energy, enhanced energy storage, and other crucial technologies for the transformation of the EU energy system
  • The role of Central European countries and their contribution in implementing the Energy Union's and the SET Plan's goals.
