Roadmaps towards climate change adaptation

The world is changing, becoming increasingly complex. Climate change is the environmental problem of the 21st century contributing to the complexity, and introducing unpredictable changes with potentially harmful consequences to growing urban settings. Following the case session “Resilient Regions and Climate Change adaptation” (Wednesday, 1 November 2017, 11:00-12:30), case study representatives will be taken into a-world-café-style roundtable discussions delving into actions towards climate change adaptation for their respective cities. The session provides participants with an interactive space to probe further into roadmaps for the development of adaptive, sociotechnical measures and strategies.  Join Dr. Sutat Weesakul, Director of the Hydro and Agro Informatics Insitute, Kurt Ruan, Project Manager of VROMI, Dr. Lai, Director General, Water Resources Agency, Ministry of Economic Affairs and other local stakeholders as we respond to the realities of today, the uncertainties of the future and seek to become more climate resilient.
