The theme of this year's Symposium is: "Effective Frameworks and Measures for Climate Change to COP21".
IIASA's Deputy Director General Nebojsa Nakicenovic will attend and deliver a presentation on "The Road to Paris: From Global Commitments to National Pledges and Co-Benefits" at the annual ALPS International Symposium, convened by Japan's Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE), with support from the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).
The Symposium will also disseminate the research achievements of the ALPS (Alternative Pathways toward Sustainable development and climate stabilization) project, sponsored by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). This research project focuses on how mitigation of global warming and adaptation of impacts of global warming should be promoted to lead to green growth. IIASA is one of the project's international research partners.
The Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE) was established as a center of excellence to work internationally toward developing innovative environmental technologies based on the Earth Regeneration Plan "the New Earth 21" compiled by the Japanese Government in 1990.
