The CLIC team has been quite busy in May!
Documenting adaptation initiatives is a hard work. However, it is even harder to understand what is happening behind the curtains. For this reason, during May, we did some field work in Portugal in order to understand from the stakeholders themselves, the very interesting adaptation planning process that this country and the municipalities are undertaking. We were welcome to stay during these weeks at CENSE – Center for Environmental and Sustainability Research, a centre located in metropolitan Lisboa as part of the FCT Nova (Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa). There, we were lukcy to present our project to CENSE researchers. We really enjoyed the great discussion there!
After two intensive weeks of interviews and meetings, we also participated in ECCA 2019 that was being held in Lisbon. We organised a session on equity and justice in adaptation and presented two research studies as part of the CLIC project:
Monitoring adaptation in cities: Considerations for equity and justice
Are world-wide local climate adaptation plans on track to effectively reduce future risks?
Here I leave some photographic records of all these events!
