Conference on GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, BIODIVERSITY AND SUSTAINABILITY: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES
Conference on GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, BIODIVERSITY AND SUSTAINABILITY: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES – an international conference focused on the Arab MENA region.
All 195 states in the United Nations recognized under the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement that “climate change represents an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to human societies and the planet”. Groups such as the European Parliament have described Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development as “the greatest challenges of our time”. Recognizing that the well-being of humankind is severely affected by climate change and biodiversity loss and that it depends on healthy and resilient ecosystems, the integration of these issues is imperative.
Presented by the Canadian University Dubai (conference host) and the University of Prince Edward Island, this international conference will examine the challenges and opportunities for integrating the three issues of global climate change, biodiversity and sustainability. The conference will provide a collection of keynote speakers, panel discussions and training sessions as well as study tours of the host city, Dubai, and its surroundings.
Join leading academics, a Nobel laureate, and environment practitioners April 23 to 25 2018 to explore the challenges and opportunities faced by our World.
