The fourth and final day of the climate change conference Gobeshona 6 focused on Science-Policy Dialogue. Five sessions including the concluding ceremony marked the conclusion of this year’s conference on the theme – “Taking research into action.”

International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) organized the conference at Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) from January 20 to 23.

Dr David Keith, professor at Harvard University delivered a keynote presentation at the closing ceremony.

He highlighted that green house gases (GHG) emissions are not the problem, stating that maybe the zero-emission target would be achieved. But the problem is with what happens with the effects of climate change on the next generation, as there is a need to find solutions to move forward.

The closing ceremony started with Dr Saleemul Haq addressing the way forward for Gobeshona. Dr Huq shared his vision to take ICCCAD beyond as a centre of excellence working in climate change capacity building. He declared the next Gobeshona 7 would take place next year from January 21 to 24.

ICCCAD Deputy Director Prof Mizan R Khan, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) Director Dr Andrew Norton, Shack/Slum Dwellers International (SDI) Chair Sheela Patel, Bhutan’s National Environment Commission Director and LDC Chair Phento Tshering, MP and MoEFCC Standing Committee Chairman Saber Hossain Chowdhury, and IUB Board of Trustee Chairman A Matin Chowdhury, addressed various sessions, among others.

Gobeshona is a knowledge sharing platform for climate change research in the country.
