Seizing the opportunity of the incredible momentum of climate action, and Asia-Pacific countries being at the forefront of innovation to tackle the climate crisis, the upcoming Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2019 (APCW) is gearing up to boost the region’s response to the current climate emergency.
The Week is being organized by the United Nations Climate Change in partnership with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and other international and regional organizations, which include the United Nations Environment Programme, the United Nations Environment Programme DTU Partnership, the United Nations Development Programme, the World Bank Group, the Asian Development Bank, the International Emissions Trading Association, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies and the Climate Technology Centre and Network and will take place at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, Thailand, from 2 to 6 September 2019.
The APCW provides a space to develop multi-stakeholder climate action in the spirit of the Talanoa Dialogue, in reference to the traditional Pacific islands notion of an inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue.
The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is hosting a Regional Forum for the National Designated Entities (NDEs) from Asia, as part of the Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2019. The Forum will provide an opportunity to the NDEs and Network members based in the region to interact and strengthen their relationship with representatives of key financial institutions, regional partners, and others.
The agenda, now available online, features a spectrum of leaders from the public and private sectors, from local to national governments, from investors to business leaders, and from representatives of the youth and the civil society to UN officials.
