The Lahore COP21 - Paris Climate 2015 Forum

Date: October 13, 2015
Venue: Lahore

In the run up to the Paris Climate 2015 conference (COP21) that will take place in December 2015 in Paris, the Climate Forum organized in Lahore on October 13th and 14th 2015, offers an unprecedented opportunity to all Pakistani stakeholders to coordinate their action.

This Forum conceived and supported by the Embassy of France, is led by a large platform of INGO, NGO, academic and governmental institutions and UN agencies. The event is also financially supported by a few public and private companies particularly committed to tackling climate change. The aim of the event is to reach one of the goals of the “Lima-Paris Action Agenda” i.e. the creation of sustainable partnership between civil society, local authorities and private sector in order to find and implement solutions to mitigate or adapt to climate change. Showcasing “made in Pakistan” solutions to tackle climate change will be one of the objectives of the forum.

Four round tables:

  1. Low carbon development;
  2. Climate change and the social architecture;
  3. Integrated climate risk management, and
  4. Climate smart policy and planning, will welcome renowned experts, policy makers, as well as "solution" implementers.

The great premises of Alhamra in Lahore, where the forum will take place, will host a large public, and will be the perfect resonance box to spread the message that climate change is definitely everyone's concern.
