Join Us to accelerate Adaptation Action

Nau mai, haere mai, tauti mai!

Welcome to the homelands of Ngāi Tūāhuriri and Ngāi Tahu.

The 8th international Adaptation Futures Conference (AF2025) will be held in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand from 13 to 16 October, 2025. It is hosted by the University of Canterbury Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha with regional Oceania and international partners.

Adaptation Futures is the flagship event of the United Nations World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP).

The premier international climate change adaptation conference series enables practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and academics from across the world to gather to network, collaborate, learn, and inspire.

We’d love to hear from you! Share your ideas for priority themes for AF2025.
