ECCA is the main event in Europe dedicated to adaptation to climate change. The 2021 edition will be a virtual event, combining a series of webinars on pressing climate change adaptation challenges from 25 May to 10 June that will feed into a high-level conference on Tuesday 22 June.

The European Commission will host the 5th European Climate Change Adaptation high-level conference in Brussels, back to back with the annual European Research & Innovation Days (23-24 June 2021).

ECCA 2021 is co-organised by the European Commission, JPI Climate and three Horizon 2020 projects (SINCERE, CASCADES and RECEIPT).

The audience will include researchers and adaptation experts, policy-makers, local authorities, practitioners in climate risks management, the private sector with a focus on businesses already engaged with and taking action on climate risk, NGOs, citizens organisations, youth and education organisations, community groups engaged in adaptation, communicators and all interested individuals.
