NOCCA takes place from lunch to lunch between Tuesday 23 October and Thursday 25 October. Some sessions will be held in English and some in Swedish/Norwegian/Danish.
On Tuesday 23, the conference is opened and a series of keynote speeches from politics, academia and the private sector will address why accelerating Nordic climate adaptation is needed and what this entails. In the afternoon, poster authors will be present their work. In the evening, Norrköping municipality invites all conference participants to a welcome reception in Norrköping Old City Hall.
On Wednesday 24, ten pertinent adaptation challenges and their solutions will be addressed during two series of thematic sessions. There will also be a special event presenting the new IPCC report “Global warming of 1.5°C” and discussing its implications for Nordic climate adaptation. In the afternoon, poster authors will present their work.
On Thursday 25, three pertinent adaptation challenges and their solutions will be addressed. Two more activities will focus on sharing and learning from practical experience. One of them will highlight and discuss successful local adaptation actions. The other one will let participants engage with serious gaming and other interactive applications developed for climate adaptation.
