1C: The business of adaptation

The aim of this session is to support the meeting between research on future climate and practical business activities to discuss development of business models governed by climate change.

We welcome both practitioners and academics interested in business development. The session will include examples of why it is important to take the climate change into account. Practical regional business opportunities from climate change will also be presented and discussed.
