Thursday 30 May

14:00–15:45 Closing plenary

The road ahead

The goals and targets of international agreements for 2030 require a joint effort in the next decade to find integrated solutions and inspire action from different actors. Enhancing the coherence between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction at the research, policy and practice level is critical to move steadily in the best and most appropriated path towards a resilient Europe. What are the key messages from the conference about the path to follow and solutions and actions to overcome existing barriers?
