3rd Forum on the EU Mission Adaptation to Climate ChangE

Third Forum on the EU Mission Adaptation to Climate Change

The EU Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change 

The Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change supports EU regions, cities and local authorities in their efforts to build resilience against the impacts of climate change.

The annual Forum is a major governance element of the Mission, convening national, regional and local authorities, European institutions, Charter Signatories, and Friends of the Mission. It is an opportunity for an in-depth exchange of views, allowing for the identification of successes and challenges, and shaping the future direction of the Mission. The event also showcases regional initiatives on adaptation and promotes dialogue between the community of participants.

To make meaningful recommendations on the future direction of the Mission, we are eager to have an in-depth exchange of views on climate adaptation in Europe, the success factors of the Mission, and how to best address the challenges experienced by regions and communities in becoming climate resilient.

The 2024 Mission Forum was co-organised by the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
