With the Climate Crisis a reality all over the world, it is extremely urgent to take action on how to address the many aspects in which it affects the natural and social environment. While we need to continue to design and implement policies to prevent further climate change, simultaneously we need to adapt to the impact of changes already happening. This poses significant questions for governments how to prioritize and where to focus? In January 2021, the Netherlands hosted the Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS), which accepted the Adaptation Action Agenda.
In the follow-up to that meeting, Indonesia and the Netherlands organized a seminar under the banner of WINNER in March 2021: a journey of hope for a climate resilient future. In WINNER 2022, we are picking up on the mutual engagement with this important theme.
