The ECCA is one of the largest conferences on adaptation to climate change. It takes place every two years in Europe. Actors from science, politics as well as practice partners and non-governmental organizations come to the ECCA to promote adaptation to climate change on a global and local level and to present new research results and implementation experiences of adaptation projects.

On Tuesday, May 28, the event opened with a plenary session in which Daniela Jacob gave a talk on the key messages of the IPCC Special Report on 1.5 ° C Global Warming.

"Daniela Jacob from the Climate Service Center Germany – GERICS highlights the importance of the IPCC report, 1.5 degrees. The report highlights how the impact, extremes and vulnerabilities experienced will be less if we limit warming to 1.5 degrees rather than 2 degrees. She also comments that the changes needed are doable if we all take steps to reduce our carbon footprints, but that industry use take responsibility too. Daniela goes on to say how important it is to share knowledge so it is transferable and leads to action." (cited after ECCA 2019/Youtube)
