It identifies the positive role being played by the EU Adaptation Strategy in influencing NAS implementation, while also identifying shared challenges, including those related to short political timeframes and concretely realizing mainstreaming of climate adaptation into all sectors.Read more

Effective responses should also seek to address a range of socio-economic concerns which contribute to land and ecosystem-related problems. In her presentation "Policy recommendations - findings from the LEDDRA project," Ruta Landgrebe of Ecologic Institute highlighted this need for a socio-ecological fit of responses to LEDD. To achieve this, policies should address environmental, economic, and socialRead more
