Climate Adaptation Summit 2021

The Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) invites global leaders to reflect on the need to adapt immediately to the impacts of our changing climate. This online summit will help calibrate the accelerated action initiated by the Global Commission on Adaptation and leveraging further support for the global movement towards adaptation. During CAS, a special anchoring event of Africa will be chaired by Minister Kaag of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation together with an African Minister to galvanize solutions to significantly scale up adaptation efforts on the continent.

Will we meet you virtually?

To help trigger the systemic change required for a climate resilient world, the Netherlands will host the online Climate Adaptation Summit on January 25th 2021. Please find more information on the summit on the website: www.cas2021.com.

The Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) was originally planned to be organized by the Netherlands on 22 October 2020. As it could not be guaranteed that all countries and organizations involved would be able to participate due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was postponed. It will now be an online event.
