United Nations University-MERIT (UNU-MERIT) welcomes you to an afternoon of PechaKucha presentations on the theme of “Climate change: policy problems and innovative solutions”.
Climate change will affect many aspects of society. Citizens of low income countries will face increased vulnerability to natural disasters. Migration will intensify as climate refugees seek safety and food security. International and domestic tensions will rise as the global economy attempts to adjust to a new paradigm.
Such a wide range of problems needs to be met a by a holistic policy mix that seeks to mitigate symptoms and treat the root causes. UNU-MERIT is uniquely placed to provide insights into these problems. Experts in the field of foreign policy, migration, innovation, risk & vulnerability, regional integration and social protection will give short, engaging, and accessible presentations on pressing issues and possible solutions. Join us after for a coffee and discussion with students and staff of the UNU-MERIT.
