Climate change is altering aquatic ecosystems, driving shifts in physical and chemical processes, ecological communities and the distribution and abundance of species.

This conference is targeted at scientists, development professionals and natural resource managers working in the context of fisheries, aquaculture, rural development and related fields. It will provide a forum to share practical experiences in understanding the vulnerabilities associated with climate change and the development of risk management and adaptation strategies.

The conference will bridge inter-disciplinary gaps and provide a wider, shared perspective on the issues and the current state of knowledge. If you would like to contribute to the development of the conference or to help shape the programme please contact climate@enaca.org for more information.
