Climate adaptation visualised: watch ‘On the Road to CAS’ webinars

Climate adaptation has many, strongly interrelated aspects, as is shown in a series of webinars now available to watch on CAS TV.

Adapting to a warming earth is a challenge that is as complicated as it is compelling, even from a perspective confined to two subdisciplines: water and nature-based solutions, the major themes at ‘On the Road to CAS’ on Thursday 22 October.

That day was filled with webinars, partly in English, partly in Dutch. A complete playlist is now available online at CAS TV, the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021 YouTube channel.

From ‘rainbeer’ to intangible heritage

The presentations and discussions cover a variety of mundane best practices in climate adaptation – ranging from water-permeable road bricks and ‘rainbeer’ to mangrove cultures for coast protection – but also less obvious and more arcane aspects, such as questions concerning approaches, forms of cooperation, financing, management and investment, or the role of tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

Involvement

Speakers include Werner Schouten of the Dutch Young Climate Movement, Delta Commissioner Peter Glas, Arcadis’ European Cities director Carolien Gehrels, Chad activist Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, kite surfer Roderick Pijls, and many others who work on climate adaption in a variety of ways and positions.

Last but not least, climate adaptation is all about involvement of stakeholders. The commitment of the participants in all these webinars is evident at any case.
