Closing Plenary | Thursday 21 June | 16h30 – 18h15 | Auditorium: The 2020s Adaptation Agenda.

This session aims to synthesise key issues emerging from Adaptation Futures 2018: what have we learned, what challenges have been raised, what should we be doing in research, policy and practice to deliver on adaptation needs of society?

We start with a brief reflection on how science and practice explored at the conference can contribute to the evidence base for the IPCC 6th Assessment.

This is followed by a panel discussion where participants from policy, research and practice reflect on what they see as novel – what has shifted for them over the last three days – and what should the adaptation community be taking away with them as challenges and ideas that might lead to faster, and more pervasive action?

The session finishes with the announcement of the best poster award and the hosts for Adaptation Futures 2020.
