March 23, 2021 – h. 10:00 am CET
The First European Island Summit on Climate Change is the most important event organised by the project where academics, island focal points of the 12 EU islands and outermost regions case studies, and panellists of the European Commission analyze co-benefits and time-lead pathways for adaptation that will build more resilient archipelagos.
After 40 months of intensive work, SOCLIMPACT has faced different challenges due to its broad scope, covering outermost regions and its complexity in dealing with territories. With a consortium formed by 24 institutions of different nature and specialties, the project aims at providing modeling and accurate estimates of the socioeconomic effects of climate change (CC) and its impact in European Islands for the future up to 2100.
This meeting’s main objective is to gain awareness among high-level European representatives and regional policymakers on the project results and involve them in the sustainable use of the knowledge generated by the project, and its application in the policy design reformulation.
SOCLIMPACT set up this event as the first summit of many more annual meetings that will be held hereafter to continue joining forces and combat the impacts of Climate Change on European islands and the rest of the world.
