Several COACCH partners are involved in organizing a session at ECCA 2019 (European Climate Change Adaptation Conference), which will take place 27-31 May. The session is titled “New developments in risk governance: exploring risk attitudes and preferences for climate adaptation”, which has been accepted and promoted as a “featured event”. The aim of the session is to examine recent developments on risk-based approaches for adaptation to climate change and the opportunities and barriers of risk attitudes and preferences in policy making. Different approaches will be presented to deal with risk preferences at different scales (national, local, individual) and the results will be analysed in order to identify ways to increase policy effectiveness.
