[VOICE-OVER:] Our climate is changing. Droughts, floods, heatwaves, wildfires, and sea level rise mean we need to change with it. We need to learn to work together to become more resilient. We must adapt.
That is why the Netherlands is hosting the world’s first Climate Adaptation Summit on January 25, 2021. Heads of state, the scientific community, the private sector, international organisations, and youth groups will meet online to help the world prepare better for the effects of climate change. We will launch an agenda for the coming decade to accelerate adaptation action. Be an early adapter and join us for the Climate Adaptation Summit.

CAS 2021: Accelerating Adaptation Action
Our planet is getting warmer, which has a growing impact on our societies and economies. We need to adapt to a new, more extreme climate.
The online international Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021 on 25 and 26 January, hosted by the Netherlands, convenes global leaders and local stakeholders. It will see the launch of a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda that sets out clear commitments to deliver concrete new endeavours and partnerships to make our world more resilient to the effects of climate change.
Over the course of 24 hours, a range of events streamed from time zones across the globe will inspire change and support tangible solutions to the problems of a warming world, showing how we can achieve a climate-resilient future.
