Call for abstracts: International Conference on Climate, Water and Policy (ICCWP) 2012

The APEC Climate Centre (APCC) is planning to hold the ‘International Conference on Climate, Water and Policy (ICCWP) 2012’ for three days in September 2012 in Busan, Republic of Korea. The main objective of ICCWP is to promote the use of climate information for decision making in water resource management. While the APEC Climate Symposium (APCS) 2011 explored the use of climate information in agriculture, water resources management and energy efficiency on a broad level, APCC identified high demand for in-depth studies on each sector from the participants’ feedback. As a progression of the last APCS, ICCWP will work more deeply on climate applications in the water sector.

Please look at the first_announcement of the conference and our website ( for further information.

The conference will attract up to 60 international participants from both developing and developed countries.
