Jornada CoM SSA en la Semana de la movilidad Sostenible y el Clima 2022

CoM SSA will be hosting a day-long event on Tuesday, October 4th in Dakar, Senegal at the Sustainable Mobility and Climate Week. 

Climate change is a global challenge that requires local solutions. While mitigation is taking center stage in attempts to reduce global warming, adaptation to climate change is essential to tackle the, now unavoidable, alternation to the environment that we have already caused over the past years. 

Why climate change adaptation?

Adaptation involves both preparations and responses to climate change impacts. The warmer the world gets, the more innovative we will need to become in our adaptation approaches, as the chances of crossing critical ecological, physical, and social thresholds increase. Adaptation strategies are crucial and could provide immediate benefits to the current climate variability and extreme events. The next question is, what innovations are available to help cities in this adaptation? 

Join us at the CoM SSA Day event to discuss solutions to many climate change adaptation challenges at local level in the sub-Saharan region and discover how innovation in adaptation can be associated with changing the way we approach decision-making processes.
