Scientific congress on climate change, Copenhagen, Denmark
The University of Copenhagen will host an international scientific congress on climate change under the heading 'Climate change: global risks, challenges and decisions' from 10 to 12 March 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event is organised in cooperation with nine other universities in the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU).
The main aim of the congress is to provide a synthesis of existing and emerging scientific knowledge necessary in order to make intelligent societal decisions concerning mitigation and adaptation strategies in response to climate change. The event is set to identify the advances in science, technology and policy required that will ensure the sustainability of global communities in the current and coming decades.
The congress takes place in the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15) in Copenhagen at the end of 2009. All findings will be compiled in a book on climate change, and an executive summary with the main findings will be given to policy makers at the COP15, complementing the work of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).For further information, please visit:
