8-10 November 2010 in Stockholm
Climate change is rapidly becoming a reality to which society has to adapt. Scientists, planners and policymakers have started to address this challenge and the conference sets out to meet a growing demand for knowledge sharing on climate adaptation in the Nordic countries.
Climate Adaptation in the Nordic Countries will explore the links between adaptation science, practice, and policy. Taking an interdisciplinary perspective and involving stakeholders, the aim of the conference is to deliver insights for a socially relevant research agenda that advances the emerging science of adaptation and meets the needs of practitioners and policymakers.
Science, practice, policy: The conference invites scholars interested in climate risk, vulnerability and adaptation in a Nordic setting. Practitioners and policymakers are explicitly invited in order to stimulate discussion and the development of ideas between the realms of science, practice and policy.
The conference is an initiative of the Nordic Climate Change Adaptation Research Network (NORDCLAD-Net), which is funded by NordForsk in its TFI initiative on Effect Studies and Adaptation to Climate Change. It is coordinated and co-funded by the Stockholm Environment Institute and the Swedish research programme Mistra-SWECIA.

North Queensland is home to two incredible World Heritage Areas; the Wet Tropics and the Great Barrier Reef. Both are areas of high biodiversity and reknown beauty, and are already showing signs of the impacts of climate change.
The regional so supports highly valuable resource operations. As environmental practitioners, climate change presents great challenges as well as opportunities to harness the unique resources of the region. If you work in environmental or resource management and want to increase your capacity to tackle climate change issues, this forum is for you.
