Adaptation Futures 2016

Lighthouse broader view

This 4th international PROVIA Climate Change Adaptation Conference is hosted by the European Commission and the Government of the Netherlands. DNV GL is presenting at a number of sessions and will be hosting a pre-conference breakfast

In our view, Adaptation Futures 2016 will add critical momentum to a multi-stakeholder approach to climate linked challenges, strengthening in particular the ties between science and practice. Alongside several different types of actors, the business community has an important role to play in both developing and implementing innovative climate services and technologies.
