Assessing Regional Climate Change Impact
Kyoto, 03 October 2009  -- As one of the forty founding members of the Science and Technology in Society (STS) forum, Serageldin is invited to speak at the STS Annual Meeting, which is held on the first Sunday of October every year in Kyoto, Japan. He will also contribute as speaker and rapporteur at three of the five sessions of the Regional Climate Change (RCC) Conference on Developing an International Framework for Regional Climate Change Impact Assessments Designed to Support Local Action, which is a special adjunct session of the STS forum Meeting this year. The sessions will assess issues such as water quantity and quality, ecosystems, agriculture and health in North and South America, Asia, Europe and Africa, and will discuss what actions need to be taken.

The forum annually gathers top policymakers, business leaders, scientists, researchers, media leaders and Nobel laureates from all over the world, to address science and technology issues in the 21st century. Its aim is to build a human network, of a very broad a range of participants and organizations, that would, in time, resolve the new types of problems stemming from the application of science and technology.
