International Conference: Responding to climate change in the Caribbean

News, 23 May 2011

On June 13-14 2011 in London IIED; the Institute for the Study of the Americas (London University); and the Centre for Caribbean and Latin American Research & Consultancy (London Metropolitan University) will co-host and international conference on climate change in the Caribbean.

This policy-focused conference will bring academic researchers together with officials from governments of the Greater Caribbean (both Anglophone and Hispanic), international agencies, and representatives of the private sector and non-government organisations.

It will assess progress to date and lessons learned — the problems and obstacles as well as successes.

By assessing the story to date, the conference will provide an opportunity for policymakers, scientists, investors and educators to better understand the requirements for effective, forward-looking responses to climate change challenges in the years ahead.

A video of the conference panels, together with a conference report, copies of presentations and the text of keynote addresses, will be made available on the web. Papers will also be submitted for publication in relevant journals and considered for publication in an edited book.
