Invitation to the 6th EbA Knowledge Day: Maximizing the potential of EbA

The 6th EbA Knowledge Day will be held on Monday, June 8th, 2020 13:00-17:00 GMT

For the first time in an entirely virtual format! We will use a mobile event app allowing a much higher level of participation and interaction than a “regular” online conference.

The day’s theme: “Maximizing the potential of EbA: bridging the gap between the climate change and biodiversity agendas”

The EbA Knowledge Day will focus on the synergies between adaptation, mitigation and biodiversity conservation through interactive sessions. After the welcome sessions we’ll hear from high-level officials from Asia, Africa and Latin America about how to bridge the gap between climate and biodiversity in policy.  Next, we’ll host an interactive exchange on global policy priorities” in a panel discussion with breakout sessions.  To conclude, we’ll offer an interactive learning space where participants can use the “virtual marketplace” to present and discuss new publications, recent developments and much more. There will also be chat rooms available in the “virtual coffee breaks and many more interactive elements to allow for a maximum of active participation, networking and knowledge exchange including all participants.

The final program will soon be shared with all participants and published on the FEBA webpage and adaptationcommunity.net.

Please note that access to the virtual conference will be for registered participants only. To RSVP, please complete the online form: https://forms.gle/54WXGFNvM65qg26K9

Personalized login data for the mobile event app will then be send out to you on Friday May 29th. If you have already RSVPed by email, please consider yourself registered.
