Private Sector< BACK TO ALL THEMES
This event stimulated dialogue and cooperation between different sectors in addressing climate change. It encouraged participants to seek to answer the question: "How do they, and can they, work together to address critical mass awareness for a rapid national, regional and global response to climate change?" This one-day seminar was held around Asia by the "Redraw The Line" climate change awareness campaign, the No Impact Project and the Asia-Pacific Media Alliance for Social Awareness.
Adaptation has long been used as a strategy to deal with the ever changing climate. However in recent years with the increasing number of disaster events, the need for participatory and inclusive approach for all levels of stakeholders including the business sector has been in demand. There is a proportionate increase in the call to the private or business sector along with the public sector to come together on a common platform to increase the resilience of private sector companies to manage climate change impacts along their own supply chains and also to encourage the market for the provision of resilience-oriented goods, services and finances.
Keeping this background in mind, APAN through their sub-regional node for Central Asia-CAREC, and their partners will be organising an annual conference.
