The IMAGINE Adaptation team will be presenting some of our ongoing work at the What Works Climate Solutions Summit in Berlin.

  • Marta Olazabal will present “Indicators and metrics to evaluate urban adaptation: a systematic review” in the session “Climate Solutions & Cities: evidence synthesis” on Monday, June 10, 15:00-16:30.
  • Ana Terra Amorim-Maia will present “Evidence Synthesis of Adaptation Success: Insights from 50 Leading Experts and Implications for Research and Practice” in the parallel session “Adaptation policy: evidence synthesis” on Tuesday, June 11, 15:30-17:00

The What Works Climate Solutions Summit is a high-level conference for evidence-based climate policy that will take place June 9–12, 2024. It will promote and catalyze synthetic evidence on climate solutions for upcoming climate change assessments – particularly the IPCC’s 7th Assessment Report ─ as well as other forms of scientific policy advice.

To achieve this goal, the Summit brings together leading experts on climate solutions, key institutions curating scientific policy advice on climate change such as science assessment bodies (IPCC, UNEP Emissions Gap etc.) and science academies, evidence synthesis communities (Campbell Collaboration, Cochrane, Collaboration for Environmental Evidence, Evidence Synthesis International, Evidence-based Research Network) as well as policymakers, research funders and other users of evidence/stakeholders.

The event aims to make progress on three major goals:

  1. What works? Catalysing rigorous evidence synthesis work across the scientific community: Initiate an ambitious work program on climate solutions and advance evidence synthesis methods for evidence-based policy and the IPCC’s 7th assessment cycle.
  2. Building evidence synthesis capacity: Provide access to high-quality training in and catalyse funding for rigorous evidence synthesis
  3. Communicating change: Establish institutional dialogue on and convey the need for evidence synthesis in research, policy and practice.

Location: Technische Universität Berlin
