2021 is the year of climate adaptation. ECCA 2021 comes at the right time, after the first global Climate Adaptation Summit in January 2021, and before the COP 26 in Glasgow in November 2021. It will turn the spotlight on the pressing need to accelerate the transfer of knowledge from R&I to policies and practices, including societal transformation and behavioural change, in order to increase resilience in Europe and beyond, in the context of rising climate risks.

Adaptation actions can help boost recovery, resilience, climate change mitigation, biodiversity conservation and restoration, job creation, citizen safety, social inclusion, wellbeing, and financial security. The goal of the conference is to inspire adaptation by showcasing solutions, exchanging knowledge, creating connections, and encouraging dialogue on how to act more and faster at every level. Read more here.

ECCA 2021 is a virtual event; the high-level conference (22 June) will be preceded by a webinar series on pressing climate change adaptation challenges from 25 May to 10 June. 

ECCA 2021 is co-organised by the European Commission, JPI Climate and three Horizon 2020 projects (SINCERE, CASCADES and RECEIPT).

Participants will include researchers and adaptation experts, policy-makers, local authorities, practitioners in climate risks management, the private sector with a focus on businesses already engaged with and taking action on climate risk, investors, NGOs, citizens organisations, youth and education organisations, community groups engaged in adaptation, communicators and all interested individuals.

Attendees will have the opportunity to actively participate in the conference in many different ways and to network with other participants in the virtual marketplace, including the possibility to book 1-on-1 meetings.

Urgent Notice

The ECCA has become aware of fraudulent correspondences being spread through email, websites, and regular mail or fax, falsely claiming to be from the organization or its officials. These scams aim to deceive recipients into giving money or personal information.

The ECCA wants to warn everyone about these fake activities done using the organization's name or officials. They ask for help in identifying any suspicious communications. Remember that the ECCA does not charge fees for most conferences, never asks for money for recruitment, and does not give out prizes or funds via unofficial channels like email or fax. They also never run lotteries. If you come across such solicitation, stay cautious. Victims can report these scams to local authorities.

If you receive an email, letter, or call claiming to be from the ECCA and have doubts, reach out to the ECCA Secretariat at [email protected] before responding. It's essential to verify the authenticity of such communications to avoid falling for scams.
