One special side event of the Third 3rd International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC 2019) is the panel discussion on “Good Practices in National Level Climate Change mitigation”
Climate change is one of the most critical environmental issues facing humanity today. It deals with many aspects – science, economics, society, politics, moral and ethical questions, and it is a global problem, felt variably at local and regional scales. Mitigating climate change involves reducing the release of heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, either by reducing sources of these gases or enhancing the “sinks” that accumulate and store these gases. The objective of mitigation is to avoid significant human intervention with the climate system, and alleviate greenhouse gas levels in a timeframe sufficient to allow ecosystems to adapt naturally to climate change.
This panel discussion will discuss about the multifaceted approaches taken by representative countries of different regions of the world towards climate change mitigation and efforts which would help those countries to move towards climate-resilient and low emissions strategies. This arena is believed to act as a center stage for knowledge expansion on the field of climate change-related country-level measures and the event will provide an ideal opportunity for scientists, policy makers, industry experts, researchers, academicians, professionals, and students to widen their scope by listening to what those representatives around the world have to say about their country-level mitigatory measures.
All conference participants are welcome to participate in this Panel Discussion and participants will be provided the opportunity to have their questions and doubts cleared from the distinguished speakers during the Q&A session subsequent to the main session.
