About the conference:
The Energy Studies Institute (ESI) at the National University of Singapore is organising a conference on “Policy Responses to Climate Change and Energy Security Post-Cancun: Implications for the Asia-Pacific Region’s Energy Security”. This conference is a sequel to the conference held in July 2010, which examined policy responses post-Copenhagen.
Following the disappointing outcome of COP15 in 2009, many observers were not particularly sanguine about the results of COP16. However, it seems that some small positive steps were made at the latest gathering in Cancun and all the concerned parties, particularly governments, must continue to play their part in monitoring and lowering their greenhouse gas emissions while pursuing their energy security objectives.
The post-Cancun conference will involve participants from various companies, government offices and academic institutions and will specifically focus on the world’s largest energy consumer, the Asia-Pacific Region. There will be presentations from Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and Singapore.
