Adaptation Futures, the biennial conference of the Global Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA), will be held in Rotterdam from 10 to 13 May 2016. The fourth PROVIA worldwide adaptation conference highlights adaptation practices and solutions for people, governments and businesses, and aims to move climate change adaptation forward by promoting solutions across sectors, borders and communities. Scholars, practitioners, policymakers and business people from all around the world will meet and get the chance to exchange new and practical ideas, experiences and insights for climate change adaptation. Participants are invited to share their research findings, public and commercial solutions, and policy issues. They are asked to demonstrate how their findings might be applicable to other communities, countries or sectors.
Three types of sessions are offered: science sessions, practice sessions (including policy practice) and combined science-practice sessions. Proposals are invited for full sessions that fit one of the three categories, as well as abstracts for individual presentations in the science sessions. The organizers are particularly interested in combined science-practice sessions. Many companies and public authorities contribute to scientific research, or conduct research themselves. Science sessions are therefore open to those wishing to present scientific findings and solutions relevant to climate change adaptation. Businesses, practitioners, policymakers, designers, investors and decision makers can also interact with scientists to explore and discuss solutions to the adaptation challenge in practice sessions, or propose solution-oriented science-practice sessions.
