Climate Action Forum 2018 is jointly organized by two home-grown Clean and Green enterprises, Green in Future and Sustain Ability Showcase Asia (SASA).

The Minister for Environment and Water Resources is in support of the Climate Action Forum and help highlight relevant issues and opportunities in the Year of Climate Action.

The event will involve the People, Private and Public (3P) sectors locally and in ASEAN, as well as financial institutions, youth and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

The Chairman of the Organising Committee is Professor Jeff Obbard, an environmental scientist, ecologist and engineer, who previously served as Director for the Sustainable Development and Water Alliance at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

Professor Obbard expects the Climate Action Forum to stress the sense of urgency needed to deal with the impacts of climate change which are already making their presence felt in ASEAN and other tropical regions.

“There is a need for greater awareness in ASEAN of what needs to be done to deal with the greater frequency of extreme weather events linked to climate change and how the public and private sectors can work together to build climate resilience in countries, cities and communities”.
