Upcoming APN Side Event at RFCC 2015

APN invites global change researchers, policy makers and development practitioners in the Asia-Pacific region to attend its side event at the Regional Forum on Climate Change (RFCC) to be held on 2 July 2015, 1:00 to 2:30 pm at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand.

Bearing the theme “Scientific Research and Capacity Development Initiatives to Address Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia,” the APN side event aims to share the outcomes of five APN projects and show examples of best practices that integrate effective transfer of information from the science community to the policy makers. Mainstreaming scientific findings to policy planning has become a key interest area towards achieving sustainable development, therefore, the side event will also draw emphasis on the importance of strengthening the interaction/linkages between science and policy.

Venue and Time: Room B-202, AIT Conference Center
Schedule: 1:00 to 2:30 pm, 2 July 2015
