Finding ways to develop robust urban food ecosystems will be one of the priorities at a major climate summit in Milan later this month.
The International Conference on Water and Climate in Marseille last week – organised by the World Water Council (WWC) – highlighted the role climate change has played in the recent rise in global hunger levels and now the Climate Innovation Summit will pick up the baton on the issue.
“Climate-KIC, under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Environment Land & Sea (IMELS), will host this year’s Climate Innovation Summit in Milan on 30 October,” the event website states. “Europe’s leading gathering of climate experts and innovators will shine a spotlight on the most pressing climate issues, provide a platform for debate and drive participants to brainstorm outputs and solutions to urgent climate challenges.”
The theme of the summit, which takes place on 30 and 31 October, is Cities, Levers of Change – click here for registration details.
