Conference: Climate Change Adaptation in Practice 18-19.01.2012 in Helsinki

Dear UBC Colleagues,

An interesting climate change adaptation conference will be organized in Helsinki in January 2012. Registration has just started and is free of charge. You are all warmly welcome!

Climate Change Adaptation in Practice
3rd International BaltCICA Conference

18 – 19 January 2012
City Hall, Helsinki, Finland

The 3rd International BaltCICA Conference sets the spotlight on applied climate change adaptation. The Baltic Sea Region is expected to face changes in precipitation and flood patterns as well as rising sea levels. As coastal urban areas continue to grow, tourism is an important and growing economical factor, and nature and natural resources are to be protected, this leads to new challenges: How to safeguard drinking water availability and quality? How to manage riverine and coastal floods? How to design new urban areas and retrofit existing ones?

At the conference, cities and regions present their solutions and approaches for these challenges. The programme covers topics such as applying scientific results, assessment of adaptation methods, participatory approaches for adaptation and benefits of transnational cooperation. A special focus is given to adaptation in Finland and the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, as well as highlights from Germany, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Sweden.

The conference is the closing event of the BaltCICA project. The BaltCICA project has been part-financed by the EU Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007 - 2013.

See the draft programme and register by December 17th on the BaltCICA website: http://www.baltcica.org/meetings/conference12.html
