The Policy Learning Platform is organising a webinar series on the topic of climate adaptation, taking place on 15 and 28 June 2023.
Deltas form at the mouths of rivers, where they deposit sediment and merge with another body of water such as the sea. Deltas are biodiversity hotspots, host diverse ecosystems and act as natural buffers for extreme weather events. They are particularly vulnerable to climate change and require urgent adaptation measures such as the restoration of wetlands and coasts.
The 2022 IPCC report in particular highlighted that the world and Europe have a rapidly closing window to secure a liveable future. The rise in weather and climate extremes has led to some irreversible impacts, as natural and human systems are pushed beyond their ability to adapt. It calls for the implementation of urgent actions for coastal restoration and restoring degraded wetlands and rivers.
Join our webinar series to learn from inspiring solutions, good practices, guidance and recommendations backed by real-life examples from deltas and coastal regions from Interreg Europe projects.
