• Workshop: Advancing Adaptation - Testing of a portal of adaptation options
    Workshop: Advancing Adaptation - Testing of a portal of adaptation options
    World Water Congress 2015 (May 25-29) & Resilient Cities Congress 2015 (June 8-10)
Current uptake of adaptation options, particularly in developing countries, is limited and until recently, there has been little political will and technical capabilities to implement adaptation. While momentum is building, fostering local resilience and accelerated adaptation requires the development of tools that allow successful and innovative solutions to be shared and scaled-up.
 
In order to help combat the challenges of fostering accelerated and improved adaptation, a searchable and accessible compendium of adaptation options was developed as part of IDRC's Climate Change and WATER (CCW) program.
 
This workshop will showcase the compendium of adaptation options and provide participants with the opportunity to test the interactive tool. The tool serves two functions:
  • As a portal of information to help increase knowledge on identified adaptation options
  • As a platform for synthesizes and assessed information on the adaptation options included
 
Join us at the World Water Congress 2015 or at the Resilient Cities Congress 2015 to help test this exciting online portal!
