1st Annual International Technical Workshop on Climate Risk: Facing the Challenges of Global Climate Regulation, Compliance and Innovation

20 October 2016
The Hampton Inn Wells‐Ogunquit, Wells, Maine, US

Long before the Paris Agreement, scientists, engineers, business men and women, public officials, academicians and non‐governmental organizations (NGOs) throughout the United States and the world were hard at work in solving the myriad of problems associated with anthropogenic climate change.

Now, with the legislative force of the Montreal Protocol in support of the Agreement’s reduction goals, it is time to bring these various communities of practice together to (1) leverage our many successes to date to inspire future innovations through ‘lessons learned’, (2) ensure that new atmospheric environmental regulations are timely communicated and economically implemented and (3) identify business opportunities for related sustainable development.

Topics adressed at the workshop will be (among others):

  • Advances in mitigation, adaptation and resilience in many fields
  • Developments in energy, transportation and agriculture sectors
  • Updates in regional/national/international policies and implications
