Climate Change: Resilience, Transformation and Equity

Pullman Bangkok Grande, Sukhumvit, Bangkok (Thailand)
Organized By: SMARTS Center, Asian Institue of Technology
28 Apr 2023

Climate change is already shaping the economy, business and future of human living and wellbeing. The IPCC prepares comprehensive Assessment Reports about the state of scientific, technical and socio-economic knowledge on climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for reducing the rate at which climate change is taking place. It also produces Special Reports on topics agreed to by its member governments, as well as Methodology Reports that provide guidelines for the preparation of greenhouse gas inventories.

The outreach event will be hosted and organized by SMARTS Center (South and South-east Asia Multidisciplinary Applied Research Network on Transforming Societies of Global South).

The event took place on the 28 April 2023 from 09:00 to 17:00 at Hotel Pullman Bangkok Grande, Sukhumvit, Bangkok.
