The second International Climate Adaptation Summit was held in the Netherlands on 25 and 26 January. The online event included the first screening of the documentary The Climate Resilient City Explained. NextGreen provided input for the documentary based on its analysis of action on climate adaptation in the financial sector.
The 25-minute documentary shows how cities can be made climate-resilient. This is done using examples and lessons learned from a number of Dutch cities, which concluded their City Deal Climate Adaptation with this documentary. The stories emphasize the importance of collaboration between municipalities, water boards, provinces, national government, citizens, companies and financial institutions. This is completely consistent with the results of the analysis that NextGreen has been working on together with Climate-Proof Together (Samen Klimaatbestendig).
