In January the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) will host a session on insights and lessons learned related to good practice co-produced climate services for improved adaptation planning and decision-making.

How to best connect adaptation science and practice?

The session will building on experiences from case studies in Sweden and the European context addressing local adaptation processes to extreme weather events, such as heat waves and floodings, the session will showcase barriers and opportunities for effective exchange of knowledge, mutual learning and trust-building between practitioners, policy makers and climate scientists. A particular focus will be on tools for monitoring, evaluation and learning to allow for flexible and iterative participatory approaches while allowing for meaningful participation of stakeholders with different capacities and needs.
