World climate conference - (WCC-3)

  • Type: Meeting or Conference
  • Date: 31 Aug - 04 Sep 2009
  • Location: Switzerland (Geneva)
  • Venue: Geneva International Conference Centre

Description

WCC-3 will build on the achievements of the First and Second World Climate Conferences. It will focus on how humankind can benefit from the advances in climate prediction and information services to manage climate-related risks as a way of developing resilience through adaptation. It will urge all countries worldwide to pool their resources and energies.

Recent natural disasters which inflicted devastating loss of life and property, and incurred food insecurity, demonstrate the urgency of jointly addressing climate-related risks for the benefit of society. WCC-3 is expected to propose global actions that will enhance the provision of climate prediction and information services and their integration into the decision-making process.

WCC-3 will further the dialogue between countries at the 15th session of the Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC (30 November-11 December 2009), by which they will agree on mechanisms to help meet the global goals of sustainable development.
