ECCA 2019 - European Climate Change Adaptation Conference

Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisboa
Octávio Pinto

In preparation for the new decade, society urgently needs to implement actions that can make us more resilient to the challenges of the 21st century. Societies that are well-adapted to the changing climate are critical to minimise present and future risks and vulnerabilities, as well as maximise opportunities.

ECCA 2019 - European Climate Change Adaptation Conference
Logótipo da conferência ECCA 2019

The impacts of extreme weather events are felt keenly in urban areas, particularly as city populations expand and stresses on infrastructure increase. Intelligent risk management and preparation for extreme weather events are essential to protect inhabitants.

Adapting to climate change requires a coordinated and coherent approach from a diverse range of actors from different sectors. This cooperative approach allows us to make the best use of resources, and improve learning and knowledge exchange in order to deliver optimal solutions. Interaction and collaboration with the disaster risk reduction (DRR) community is a critical element in improving climate change adaptation (CCA), as the communities share similar goals and activities. Bringing the two groups together is particularly important in relation to the goals and targets of the three major international agreements: Paris, Sendai Framework for DRR and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The 4th ECCA builds on past conferences that took place in Hamburg (2013), Copenhagen (2015) and Glasgow (2017), and aims to:

  • Provide a space that facilitates the dialogue between academia, government, business and citizens on the issues of climate change adaptation;
  • Promote the communication and knowledge exchange between researchers, policymakers and practitioners;
  • Find solutions and inspire practical action;
  • Support ongoing efforts to enhance the coherence and collaboration between CCA and DRR research, policy and practice;
  • Discuss key sectorial challenges and solutions in cities;
  • Provide a stage for presenting European’s excellence on Research & Innovation for CCA;
  • Inform the next European funding framework for Research & Innovation.

Leitura e escrita são a base fundacional de todas as literacias e a condição primeira para o juízo compreensivo e crítico, o enriquecimento cultural, a formação estética e a memória individual e coletiva das sociedades.

Overview: Currently, climate changes or alterations are known to be reflected on the stable isotope ratios of Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Oxygen and Sulphur present in atmospheric gas forms, fresh or ocean water, as well as in plants and animals and organi

Objectives: Evolutionary theory provides a framework for understanding all living systems.

Objectives: To introduce participants to the details of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, including, but not exclusive to, public and private stakeholders, students and teachers, and media professionals.

Objectives: Natural history museums are privileged spaces for seminal research on different subjects of biological sciences such as biodiversity, evolution, ecology, biogeography and taxonomy.

Objectives: Provide students with basic workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

Objectives: Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

Objectives: The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the details of communication and writing scientific publications. The main emphasis is on the most common form, the “primary scientific paper”, but other forms will be covered.

Objectives: Lack of fertile land to feed the exponentially growing population, insufficient water availability and quality, changes in the flow of nutrients through the bio-geo-cycles (especially N and P) and climate and land use changes are impacting ecosystem

Objectives: Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth.

Objectives: The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects. It aims at providing an integrated approach on urban socio-ecological systems.

Objectives: Citizen science can be part of the larger process of engaging people in new forms of interaction in scientific research, challenging scientists and citizens whilst enlarging scientific knowledge and providing learning opportunities for all part

Objectives: This course aims at: 1) exploring how scientists can use social media as tools to enhance the communication of their research and the dialogue with society, and 2) discussing the differences that exist in the work of scientists and journalists

Objectives: This course will teach how to apply the SWAT eco-hydrological model to assess the impacts of climate and associated changes on water-soil-plant interactions, and consequences to water resources, soil erosion and nutrient cycles.

Objectives: Provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.
