We are honoured that Maarten Loonen is invited to be the keynote speaker at the climate adaptation symposium. The symposium will take place after the honorary degree ceremony for Ban Ki-moon and the official opening of the Global Center's office in Groningen.

The Global Center on Adaptation advances bold actions to help societies across the world become more resilient to climate-related threats. It acts as a solutions broker, bringing together governments, the private sector, civil society, intergovernmental bodies, and knowledge institutions that can address the obstacles slowing down adaptation action. At its two Netherlands locations, Groningen and Rotterdam, the Global Center leverages the strengths and powers of diverse but complementary regions that are part of its international networks, knowledge and experience.

For more information see the symposium website and the website of GCA.
