The Society of Hydrologists and Meteorologists Nepal (SOHAM) in association with Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM), Government of Nepal (GoN) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation International Hydrological Programme Nepal (UNESCO IHP-Nepal), is organising a conference on "Climate Change, Water Resources and Disasters in Mountainous Regions: Building Resilience to Changing Climate" in November this year. The conference, which will be held in Kathmandu from November 27 to 29, invites scientists, engineers, planners and development workers to present their research outcomes, observations, findings and innovative ideas on this theme. Selected peer reviewed papers will be published in the Journal of Hydrology and Meteorology published by SOHAM-Nepal
Adaptation Strategies / Adaptation-Mitigation Nexus< BACK TO ALL THEMES
Asia-Pacific region has experienced many extreme weather events in recent years which have led to large numbers of people at high level of exposure to risks including the risk of forced migration. With climate change as an exacerbating factor, migration flows are likely to increase in the Asia Pacific region.
In response, IOM will conduct the first pilot training for policymakers and practitioners on the migration-environment nexus.
The training takes place over three days in the Seoul metropolitan area. Leading experts from around the world will lead each training module.
◆ Build capacity of policymakers and practitioners in order to factor migration into environmental and development policies, climate change adaptation strategies, and to factor environmental change into the comprehensive migration management policies of each country;
◆ Facilitate policy exchange among policymakers and practitioners on migration, environment and climate change
