Created in 2016 and founded by the municipality of The Hague, ImpactFest is the flagship event of ImpactCity The Hague and takes place annually. The event provides an opportunity for purpose-driven organisations to present their work, pitch for investors and exchange experiences to address global challenges.

Barbara Rosen Jacobson, Advocacy Advisor for the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance at Mercy Corps will be at ImpactFest and speaking at the Driving Systemic Change: Redefining Loss & Damage session.

In a world that is continuously being devastated by the impacts of climate change, ‘Loss & Damage’ has become increasingly prominent, and a proactive approach is crucial in order to minimise and address the issue. In this session, Barbara, alongside other expert speakers, will challenge all stakeholders across the ecosystem to think about their role in the system, and how they can use their power to build climate resilience that protects those who need it most.

Date: 7th November 2023
Time: 11:30am – 1:00pm CEST
Location: Room 9
