A Regional Forum on Climate Change (RFCC) will be organized jointly by the Asian Institute of Technology; French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development; ASEAN Secretariat, and the European Union (EU) from 1-3 July 2015 at the AIT Conference Center. The theme of the Conference is “Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Societies: Bridging Science, Practice and Policy.”
“Regional Forum on Climate Change (RFCC) - Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Societies: Bridging Science, Practice, and Policy”, which will be held from 1st – 3rd July, 2015 at the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand. The event is jointly organized by the Asian Institute of Technology; French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development; ASEAN secretariat, and the European Union.
The main objective of the RFCC is two-fold. First, it aims to create a platform for engaging a variety of stakeholders from the ASEAN region in discussions on climate change related agenda in order to ease the translation of science into practice and policy. Second, it aspires to assist negotiators, policy makers and high-level advisers from ASEAN to benefit from the results of contemporary scientific research to carve climate change related policies in the long term, as well as to offer ASEAN negotiators a venue to build positions of increased ambition prior to the COP 21.
The RFCC will discuss a wide range of topics related to climate change, and thus welcomes participation from all sectors and streams. I will encourage you, and your organization, to participate in this Forum, and avail of this opportunity to both benefit, and contribute, to the multidisciplinary discussions and perspectives.
