Time to innovate: Adapting Together

The Adaptation Futures Conference series is the premier international conference devoted entirely to climate change adaptation, bringing together researchers, policymakers,practitioners, industry representatives and communicators to present their work on adaptation,discuss emerging and cutting-edge issues, learn what others are doing, and build networks.

The Conference provides a unique chance to share expertise, skills and backgrounds and exchange experiences with an active adaptation network. This biennal conference is the flagship event of the World Adaptation Science Programme, one of the four components of the World Climate Programme.

In October 2023, Ouranos, the Government of Canada and the WASP will host the 7th edition of Adaptation Futures (AF2023). While the main hub of the conference will be located at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, Québec, Canada, an innovative format will facilitate the participation of a wide range of stakeholders around the world. Stay tuned, registration will open mid-April 2023.

AF2023 will be a critical meeting point to advance discussion about climate change adaptation in an increasingly complex world.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Montréal in October 2023!
