The meetings are a platform to discuss challenges and solutions across a range of topical categories, including:
  • Presentation and analysis of academic research related to helping countries, regions, cities, communities and individuals build resilience to climate variability and change
  • Demonstration of methodologies or tools to assess climate vulnerabilities and build resilience
  • Findings and lessons learned from field-based pilot studies, research and programming
