Workshop on climate change adaptation in the energy, tourism and transport sectors
The ToPDAd consortium kindly invites you to participate in its workshop in Oslo from 30 September to 2 October 2014.
Venue: Center for International Climate and Environmental Research, Gaustadalleen 21, 0349 Oslo, Norway
At the workshop ToPDAd will present the first results of seven case studies on adaptation to climate change, from three sectors - energy, transport and tourism.
ToPDAd's objective is to develop tools that support policy makers and businesses when deciding on strategies to adapt to the consequences of climate change.
The case studies include themes such as decreasing snow reliability, rising average summer temperatures, the impact of Arctic ice melting, as well as weather extremes and their impact on traffic, tourism and energy production.
On 30 September researchers will present the data and models behind the case studies, their policy relevance and possible end-users, to stakeholders. The workshop will also discuss the 2015 European Climate Change Adaptation Conference in Copenhagen.
Invited to the stakeholder workshop are both ToPDAd’s advisory board members as well as businesses and policy advisors in the energy, tourism, commerce and environment sectors; industry organisations; management consultants and consulting engineers.
On 1 and 2 October ToPDAd project members will discuss next steps and working arrangements at a scientific workshop and a general assembly meeting. These meetings are exclusively for project members.
