Three days of field visits to community based adaptation projects in different ecosystems. Three days of interactive discussions on different thematic areas in Dhaka. The conference aims to: Share the latest developments in adaptation planning and practices, priority sectors and measures at different levels and disseminate knowledge among stakeholders and communities.
During recent years, “Climate Change” has been on the top of national as well as international agendas. United Nations have established the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the reports of its International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have provided strong scientific evidence on the causes and impacts of climatic change. The recent COP15 meeting in Copenhagen failed to agree on coherent mitigation action against the dominant GHG emission sources, and it now seems likely that the changes and their impacts will exceed the recommendations of the IPCC.
Conference DetailsThe Democratizing Climate Governance Conference is hosted by the ANU Centre for Deliberative Democracy & Global Governance, co-sponsored by the ANU Climate Change Institut, and is endorsed by Earth System GovernanceThe purpose of the conference is to examine the challenges that climate change poses considerable to democracy. Further the conference will explore potential avenues for democratizing climate governance.

Objective: Who needs to do what differently in order to tackle the complex challenges posed by climate change? Climate adaptation requires many professionals to develop a new and dynamic combination of knowledge and skills – utilising theoretical, methodological and empirical knowledge from both the natural and social sciences and applying it to foster collaborative learning and support organisational change at various levels.
Pacific Islanders working to reduce the risk of natural disasters and combat the effects of climate change in their island nations will meet with their Caribbean counterparts to engage in an exchange of technologies, ideas and expertise. The exchange is part of the South-South project established to strengthen the safety and resilience of both regions in facing common threats based on the similar geography of small islands and is taking place from 10-23 July across four Carribbean countries.
