A knowledge sharing event on climate adaptation, vulnerability and risk assessment and the resilience of major infrastructure projects was held in Brussels on 7-8 June 2016.


Target audience

The event was aimed at practitioners in the field of climate change adaptation and representatives from managing authorities, line ministries and beneficiaries that are or will be responsible for the preparation of projects in the period 2014-2020.



The assessment of climate change risks and the integration of appropriate adaptation measures in order to promote climate resilience are essential steps in project development.  The purpose of the event was to bring together individuals and organisations working on climate change adaptation for infrastructure projects across Europe, encouraging the exchange of views, ideas and experiences through interactive sessions and discussions.

This knowledge sharing event on climate change adaptation: vulnerability and risk assessment and the resilience of major infrastructure projects, was jointly organised by the JASPERS Networking Platform, the European Investment Bank (EIB), and the European Commission (DG Climate Action and DG Regional and Urban Policy) to facilitate capacity building and sharing of experiences on this topic.

The event included sessions on the following topics: development of methodologies and guidance on vulnerability and risk assessment; practical experience and lessons learnt from integrating resilience into project case studies. The need for follow-up activities, further guidance at European level, and more detailed exchange of experience, was also addressed during the event.
