New Delhi: Climate change has thrown multiple challenges at us and, in that context, a social enterprise dedicated to strengthening the climate ecosystem will launch the “Climate Asia” conference on Thursday.
The purpose of the conference is to take adaptive and mitigative measures to deal the changes in the eco-system.
“Climate Asia conference endeavours to create conversations around three main pillars: “Share, Empower,and Connect” by increasing awareness, up-skilling the ecosystem, and catalysing networking among players within and outside the industry, said the statement.
Climate Asia will also host dialogues with experts from across the climate spectrum on topics ranging from the future of work to climate talent, the funding landscape, and civil, community, and grassroots action.
In light of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report and the upcoming COP 27, organisers are alive to the fact that climate change is going to fundamentally alter the nature of most industries. There is a pressing need to take adaptive and mitigative measures.
We’re in a decisive decade to act against climate change and we need bold actions to accelerate the pace of interventions leading to social and economic impact. Climate Asia will play a significant role in bridging the talent gap to build a robust climate ecosystem, “said Satyam Vyas, (Founder & CEO), Climate Asia.
