PSBA-Manila GSB, DRM Unit to Attend the 2018 Asia Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum

October 15, 2018 – Dr. Tabassam Raza, Associate Dean of the Graduate School of Business and Director of the Disaster Risk Management Unit (DRM Unit) of the Philippine School of Business Administration – Manila (PSBA-Manila) will be participating in the Asia Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum events with the theme of  “Enabling Resilience for All: Avoiding the Worst Impacts” held on October 17 to 19, 2018 at the ADB Headquarters, Manila,

The Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum, the flagship event of the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), is the primary regional platform for adaptation practitioners to meet, share their learning and experiences, and work together towards the pertinent outcomes and practical solutions that are needed to address the challenges of climate change.

The Objectives of the event:

  • Address the capacity building needs and priority issues in the Asia Pacific regions that would enable the scaling of tools and the means to resilience that will equip our human systems and communities with the capacity to withstand and moderate the worst-case scenarios.
  • Facilitate the “how” part of adaptation knowledge and programmes, with actionable, scalable “next step” guidelines for communities, stakeholders, and governments.
  • Report on the specific actions taken since the last APAN Forum regarding progress on addressing the priority knowledge, policy and funding gaps;
  • Act as a platform for discussions and outcomes that would accelerate action and provide the basis for complementary and concrete groundwork for the 2018 Global Stocktake facilitative dialogues, as well as for both ASEAN and Pacific country contributions leading to COP 24 in Katowice, Poland at the end of the year.
