Joining forces: PLACARD CCA & DRR workshop

24 October 2017, 10:00–18:00

Red Cross EU Office, Brussels, Belgium

Cooperation between organisations dealing with climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) is crucial to increase effectiveness and efficiency. Implementing mechanisms to support and increase coordination and cooperation are key elements, and essential to strengthen institutional capacities and synergies. The workshop will:

  • Provide an overview of existing information on institutional capacity to address CCA and DRR at different scales;
  • Give room for discussion on how institutions working in CCA and DRR can enhance cooperation;
  • Put examples of good practice at the forefront of mainstreaming CCA and DRR into policies and practices.

The results of the workshop will be used to develop guidelines on how to increase cooperation between institutions/organisations working on CA and DRR.

Drinks and snacks will be provided at the reception following the workshop.
