Climate Change -Sustainable development- Session:

Both mitigation and adaptation are core agenda on climate change policy which have long been debated over at international negotiation. Common perspective for implementing these approaches in developing countries in effective and practical way is “sustainable development”. For example, it seems encouraging for developing countries to take actions to reduce both greenhouse gas emissions and pollutions or to design effective adaptation programs that are consistent with national /sub-national development needs

Through presentation and discussion by experts such as scientists, government officials, international organization and development agencies, this session aims at (i) sharing common views on co-benefits relevant to mitigation/adaptation, and (ii) identifying effective mitigation/adaptation measures which can achieve sustainable development in Asian countries.
