The European Week of Regions and Cities is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy and a great opportunity to maximise the presence of regional representatives from different parts of the EU and high-level EU representatives.

The central focus of this roundtable discussion is to shed light on the hurdles and opportunities in the pursuit of effective transborder cooperation for climate adaptation. It’s an occasion to explore the challenges, gaps, and barriers that regions often encounter, but also to celebrate and share successful strategies and enablers that can inspire progress.
