Hotel Intercontinental Presidente, Mexico City (CDMX), México
The theme of the Forum in Mexico City would be "Implementing the Paris Agreement and the SDGs". It is also proposed to hold a stream of parallel sessions, which would include issues related to youth; gender; the role of business; cities and local governments; the role of the media; and knowledge organizations and civil society. The Forum in Mexico City would place great importance on the nature and timing of the energy transition required worldwide, by which the concentration of GHGs in the atmosphere can be limited and the risks from the impacts of climate change contained to ensure the wellbeing of future generations. The recent spurt in extreme events, clearly projected in a special report brought out in 2011 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), only adds a higher sense of urgency to tackling the challenge of climate change and meeting the SDGs. The impacts of climate change would require scientifically valid methods and measures for adaptation, as these impacts become progressively more harmful. Fortunately, solutions are available today for mitigation and adaptation, which are economically viable, and these would be shared and discussed in the Forum.
Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Nakicenovic will participate as one of the speakers.
