subject Deadline for abstracts extended to 10 August: ‘Climate Adaptation in the Nordic Countries’

Due to technical problems with the abstract submission system we have extended the deadline for submitting abstracts to Tuesday 10 August.
Abstracts can be submitted online at

Abstracts are invited on all issues relevant to climate adaptation in the Nordic countries, including (but not limited to) the following:

– Theory and methods for adaptation research
– Scenario-based impact studies
– Vulnerability assessment and vulnerability indicators
– Adaptation as a social process (including cultural factors, values, institutions)
– Climate information, climate services
– Adaptation planning and decision tools
– Adaptation policy development
– The economics of adaptation
– Adaptation in urban regions
– Adaptation in rural areas
– Adaptation and natural resources (forests, agriculture, water, marine environment)
– Adaptation in the tourist sector
– Adaptation and human health
– Insurance, finance and adaptation
– The role of non-state actors in adaptation (civil society, private sector)
– Gender perspectives on adaptation
Nordic adaptation within an EU and global context
– Links between adaptation and mitigation

We also welcome your suggestions for parallel sessions, especially those that bring together knowledge from multiple locations and research projects. Session proposals should include a description of the session (topic, motivation, format). Please send your session proposal, together with abstracts for each suggested presentation, by email to no later than 10 August. All parallel sessions will be 90 minutes long.

As communicated earlier, the international conference ”Climate Adaptation in the Nordic Countries: Science, Practice, Policy’ will take place in Stockholm on 8–10 November 2010. Please note that we are unable to provide financial support to participants. Any requests to this effect will be ignored.
