Organizer: 

Research Centre for Climate Change Adaptation (RCCCA)

Location: 

Keio University, Hiyoshi Campus, Yokohama, Japan

Event type: 

This symposium will focus on innovations in practice that advance transformation in relation to both climate change adaptation and resiliency. Issues we expect to address include short and long term plans, how to implement change, the need for small and large scale responses, the role of technology, policy innovation, and the advent of new methodologies.

The symposium will be treated as a series of intense workshops where knowledge is shared and created through presentations and discussion over the two day event. A publication of the presentations and discussions is planned after the event and we invite participants to share their ideas freely and to engage in a thoughtful and lively discussion.
