Welcome to the 2nd International Conference on Climate Change 2018 to be held from 15th-16th February 2018 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Climate change is one of the defining challenges of the 21st century, along with global population, poverty alleviation, environmental degradation and global security. The problem is that ‘climate change’ is no longer just a scientific concern, but encompasses economics, sociology, geopolitics, national and local politics, law, and health just to name a few and directly impact on the Global Sustainability. ICCC 2018 will address a range of critically important areas in relation to Climate Change under the theme “Climate change and global sustainability: Action for bridging the gap” and will create a great platform to discuss and find solutions to the climate change and achieve Global Sustainability.
