Recording of the webinar
Adaptation is traditionally implemented at national and subnational levels. However, climate risks are in many cases “borderless” in nature. Climate change in one country will create risks and opportunities – and therefore may require adaptation – in other countries. This global aspect of adaptation is still undervalued also in international negotiations.
The webinar focuses on the importance to adopt a transboundary view of climate risk, which explicitly recognizes the interconnections between people, ecosystems and economies in a globalized world. Global negotiations on climate change have a key role to play in adopting and implementing a transboundary framing of climate risk, though other non-climate conventions and processes can play important roles as well.
