MAIA Policy-Science Dialogue Roundtable “Supporting Adaptation Planning at the Regional Level by Connecting Knowledge to Policy Implementation”

In the face of escalating climate change impacts, effective adaptation planning at the regional level is critical. As communities grapple with increasingly frequent and severe climate-related challenges, bridging the gap between knowledge and policy becomes imperative.

Key messages

In the face of escalating climate change impacts, effective adaptation planning at the regional level is critical. As communities grapple with increasingly frequent and severe climate-related challenges, bridging the gap between knowledge and policy becomes imperative. This event aims to address this gap by facilitating dialogue and collaboration among policymakers, scientists, and experts to enhance regional adaptation strategies.

Aim

Bring together decision-makers with practitioners and researchers to discuss and exchange on how to strengthen adaptation plans and strategies looking at concrete ongoing projects and plans under elaboration such as the draft Scottish National Adaptation Plan and other regional strategies. 

Agenda

  • Exploring strategies to leverage climate finance for adaptation effectively and engaging with the private sector. 
  • Defining criteria for success: aligning policy and scientific perspectives for successful adaptation plans. 
  • Strengthening monitoring and evaluation practices to ensure effective adaptation. 
  • Integrating international perspectives into regional adaptation plans: internationalization in regional adaptation strategies. 


Audience 

Practitioners, regional government representatives and experts: Scottish relevant partners, Regions4 members and RegionsAdapt partner and the MAIA consortium partners. 


Output 

A report of the event will be drafted by Regions4 for wide circulation and dissemination as part of RegionsAdapt learning materials, and MAIA’s policy briefs.
