Researchers, policy and decision makers are concerned about the actions that need to be taken to reduce the risks associated with climate change. In this discussion, participants will discuss from the perspective of the IPCC's 6th Assessment Report on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability that was published this year to introduce the public to the topic of governance for sustainable development.
The Climate Change Action Programs that have been developed in Mexico are examples of the dialogue that can take place between scientists and decision makers. From practical experience, we will learn examples of the actions that are necessary to transfer scientific information effectively so that is useful to society and the public sector in the area of sustainability.
In brief, the audience will learn about transforming the results of scientific information into long-term preventive action.
