February 12, 2023


Sri Lanka, hosted International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC) 2023, the seventh edition, brought several experts from over 25 countries on to one platform.  Held under the theme ‘Climate Action and Emerging Challenges: Land and Ocean-based Solutions’, the two-day event, which concluded Friday, provided a forum for the experts to share their latest research findings, knowledge, opinions and suggestions to tackling the biggest challenges faced by nations across the world today. 
Delivering the keynote address, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Vice Chair Prof. Mohan Munasinghe asserted that multiple threats are inter-related and synergistic but stakeholder interests are divergent.  
“As responses are uncoordinated and with weak leadership towards climate change, people must push leaders to take more decisive action, especially at mid-level,” he said, addressing the conference in Colombo.
