Fifth Workshop on Adaptation to Climate Change in Transboundary Basins

14 - 15 October 2014

Geneva, Switzerland

The fifth workshop on water and adaptation to climate change in transboundary basins took place in the Palais des Nations in Geneva in room XII, 14-15 October 2014 back-to-back with the 7th meeting of the Task Force on Water and Climate (Geneva, 13 October 2014) under the leadership of the Governments of the Netherlands and Switzerland, with the support of the UNECE secretariat.

The workshop focused on developing and implementing climate change adaptation strategies and measures, considering expected outcomes at the transboundary level. It brought together professionals from all over the world working on adaptation to climate variability and change, with a special but non-exclusive focus on transboundary basins.
