The “Regional Forum on Climate Change (RFCC) – Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Societies:
Bridging Science, Practice, and Policy”, which will be held from 1st – 3rd July, 2015 at the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand. The event is jointly organized by the Asian Institute of Technology; French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development; ASEAN secretariat, and the European Union.
There are two main objectives of the RFCC. Firstly, this forum is organised to create a platform for engaging a variety of stakeholders from the ASEAN region in discussions on climate change related agenda in order to ease the translation of science into practice and policy. Secondly, it aspires to assist negotiators, policy makers and high-level advisers from ASEAN to benefit from the results of contemporary scientific research to carve climate change related policies in the long term, as well as to offer ASEAN negotiators a venue to build positions of increased ambition prior to the COP 21.
One of the main programme of the RFCC will be the feature of keynote speeches from renowned dignitaries like José Ramos-Horta (1996 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate).
