Under the theme “Solutions for Adaptation and Resilience”, ICCCAD and LSE aim to host an online discussion event with researchers, policymakers and practitioners in light of a proposed five-year partnership between universities in the UK and Bangladesh focused on supporting new climate research, partnership and capacity building.
The event will follow a brief presentation on the background of the proposed programme of research collaboration between British and Bangladesh universities, followed with a high-level panel discussion where designated discussants will focus on the importance of such collaboration in the light of Climate Policy and Action as well as How the Pandemic is shifting the paradigm of Climate Research. The panel discussion will then follow with Q and A session.
