UBC Climate Resilience Webinar 26.3.2019
UBC Climate Resilience Webinar was held on 26.3.2019 at 10:30 – 12:00 EET. The webinar focused on climate resilience work in UBC cities. The webinar was held in English.
This webinar was a great opportunity for our UBC cities to both present their climate work as well as learn from what others are doing in their pursuit toward climate resilience. According to the results of the CDP Cities Questionnaire 2018, UBC cities are generally more action-oriented and already making a change when it comes to climate change adaptation and preparedness than cities elsewhere in the world. Thus, our cities have the motivation and good practices to share with others who have yet to prepare (or are in the process of preparing) their strategies and action plans for more climate resilient urban environment.
So, we hope you took this chance to learn and exchange good practices with your UBC member city colleagues!
We had cities of Tartu and Turku to present their climate work examples and a guest speaker from CDP to highlight how urban water resilience and risks to water supply matters and who are tackling these issues.
