Climate Adaptation Summit 2021: Accelerating Adaptation Action

Our planet is getting warmer, which has a growing impact on our societies and economies. We need to adapt to a new, more extreme climate.

The online international Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021 on 25 and 26 January, hosted by the Netherlands, convenes global leaders and local stakeholders. It will see the launch of a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda that sets out clear commitments to deliver concrete new endeavours and partnerships to make our world more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Watch the climate adaptation explainer video and the invitation to the Summit by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

At CAS 2021, over the course of 24 hours a range of events streamed from time zones across the globe will inspire change and support tangible solutions to the problems of a warming world, showing how we can achieve a climate-resilient future.

Take a sneak preview of the CAS 2021 programme and be sure to join.
