Conference Themes

Climate change and climate variability pose many challenges worldwide, as well as affecting the environment in which we live. Strategies to cope with climate change, risk assessment and the willingness of states and societies to bear the risks and consequences are heterogeneous and divergent. However, these solutions and strategies are often not adapted to the respective political economic and social requirements and are more reactive than preventative. Ideally, all decisions and interventions should be based on an integrated, well-considered and rational way of acting, with the aim of sustainable protection of nature and its resources.
