The Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in the Pacific Region is organized by the University of Fiji, the Research and Transfer Centre ‘Applications of Life Sciences’ of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP).
The Symposium will be an interdisciplinary event, mobilising scholars, practitioners and members of governmental agencies, undertaking research and/or executing climate change projects in the Pacific region.
It will be held at the University of Fiji, Saweni Campus in Lautoka from the 26th to the 28th of July 2016.
Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of climate change adaptation in the Pacific region, the Symposium aims to:
- to provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, government agencies and enterprises from Pacific countries with an opportunity to display and present their works in the field of climate change adaptation;
- to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of climate change adaptation projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice across the region;
- to discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, which aim to show how climate change adaptation may be implemented in practice;
- to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.
