Congress 2019 – Climate Change Session

S2: Climate Change Session

13:30-15:00, Tuesday, 7 May
Plaza Terrace Room

Just in case you didn’t hear the message in the Future Risks Session, we will be looking at what climate change means for us all in this session. Dr. Robert Glasser, former Head of the UNISDR, will look at the risks we face, and Dr. Colin Tukuitonga, Director-General of Pacific Community, will look at what this means for Pacific nations while other speakers will look at adaptation strategies followed by a panel discussing what we can all do.

This one is for everyone!
