Adaptation Futures 2016

Adaptation Futures 2016 is the fourth PROVIA worldwide adaptation conference. It will be held in Rotterdam from 10 to 13 May 2016. The conference aims to move climate change adaptation forward by promoting solutions across sectors, borders and communities.

The confernce will bring together scholars, practitioners, policymakers and business people from all around the world offering a platform to exchange new and practical ideas, experiences and insights for climate change adaptation. Participants are invited to share their research findings, public and commercial solutions, and policy issues. They are asked to demonstrate how their findings might be applicable to other communities, countries or sectors. Over four days, there will be opportunities to meet, mingle, inspire and develop partnerships.


Three types of sessions will be offered: science sessions, practice sessions (including policy practice) and combined science-practice sessions. We invite proposals for full sessions that fit one of the three categories, as well as abstracts for individual presentations in the science sessions. The call for abstracts is now open!
