STAR2Cs Project International Conference.
Routes to resilience: Reducing climate risk through adaptive planning and partnerships.
The STAR2Cs project, led by Kent County Council, unites 8 partners from the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands who are working to increase our resilience to climate change. Knowledge and expertise developed over five years of partnership culminated in the project’s international final conference in June 2021.
Across Europe, floods, droughts, and heatwaves will become more frequent, severe and costly as a result of climate change. Short Term Adaptation for Long Term Resilience to Climate Change (STAR2Cs) is working to build resilience that minimises the impacts of risk; takes advantage of opportunities; is flexible to uncertainties and changing circumstances; and provides wider benefit. In this way, no matter what the future looks like, our communities, economies and environment will continue to be great places to work, live and play.
The STAR2Cs partner organisations are working to overcome similar challenges by improving and increasing climate change adaptation. Through cross-border collaboration the STAR2Cs project has developed a range of innovative tools and solutions which demonstrate the success, cost-saving and transferability of implementing a range of adaptation solutions to build resilience to our changing climate.
The STAR2Cs solution was presented at the project’s international final conference on the 17th of June 2021. To learn more about the STAR2Cs project or watch the recording of the final conference on YouTube please visit:
