Markus Leitner finds that both adaptation and mitigation are on the agenda at the conference organised by the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic and the Slovak Environment Agency in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Oleksandr Sushchenko reports from a recent workshop in Brussels, which explored good practice in creating innovative instruments and mechanisms for financial resources.
A session at this year’s ECCA provoked Markus Leitner to consider how we can improve responses to the increase in forest fires across Europe.
