Asia-Pacific Climate Week (APCW) 2019 aims to foster engagement between the public and private sector, cities and municipalities, academia and civil society with the common goal of addressing the climate change emergency and provides an opportunity to discuss climate action, key vulnerabilities and challenges from a distinct Asian Pacific perspective. Also, it aims to support the implementation of Asia-Pacific countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement on climate change and action to deliver on the SDGs. The results of the Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2019 will feed into the outcome of the Climate Action Summit organized by the Secretary-General on 23 September in New York and will also be a key contribution to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) to be held in Santiago, Chile, from 2 to 13 December.
