Free Online Conference - Klima 2011

Welcome to CLIMATE 2011 / KLIMA 2011

The World´s CO2-friendly Scientific On-line Climate Conference

"Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management"

7-12 November 2011

Let the conference introduce you to the latest scientific findings on the social, economic and political aspects of climate change. Enter this platform on 7-12 November 2011 and read about new projects and innovative initiatives being undertaken in both industrialised and developing countries by universities and scientific institutions, government bodies, NGOs and other stakeholders.\

Delegates will find in the e-conference a unique opportunity to look at climate change issues not only under a scientific perspective but also in connection with disaster management in a way not yet seen elsewhere – interactive, across disciplines and 100 % virtual. To allow users from all over the world to access this extraordinary knowledge pool and avoiding travel costs and CO2emissions – often a major barrier for participants from the developing world –, participation is free of charge.
CLIMATE 2011/KLIMA 2011’s aims are the following:
  • Introduce latest findings from scientific research on climate variation, climate change and its links with disaster risk management;
  • Showcase projects and other initiatives in this field being undertaken in both industrialized and developing countries, by universities and scientific institutions, government bodies, national and international agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders;
  • Discuss current challenges, identify opportunities and highlight the un-seized potential related to promoting a better understanding of the connections between climate variation, climate change and disaster risk management, worldwide.
Last but not least, and similar to the previous on-line conferences in 2008, 2009 and 2010, CLIMATE 2011/KLIMA 2011 allows its participants to network with just a few mouse-clicks, thus catalyzing knowledge transfer and new cooperation across the globe.
