Climate change and covid-19


In celebration of the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021 (CAS2021), the Netherlands Embassy in Philippines is partnering with the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC) in convening a three-part webinar series entitled “Climate Change and COVID-19: Adapting to Two New Normals” on the 26th of every month from January to March. Each episode is intended to have a broad appreciation of the expansive agenda of climate adaptation already facing the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic as another crisis altogether. Discussion topics will highlight key actors, mechanisms, and experiences around narratives on local climate action planning, the role of science and emerging research for resilience building, and climate finance and policy for upscaling climate action and cooperation, as buildup leading to COP 26.
