About the conference:

The Gobeshona Conference for Research on Climate Change in Bangladesh is an annual conference that showcases research on climate change in Bangladesh. The conference provides the opportunity for international and multi-stakeholder participants to engage with a wide range of Bangladesh-specific climate change research. This is the second of this series of annual conferences and will be held from 07-11 January 2015. The first day will provide training to young researchers to encourage quality publication of their research findings. The following three days will encompass plenary and parallel sessions centred on a selection of themes. The final day will involve reflections from the Government of Bangladesh on recent climate change projects. Through these activities, Gobeshona aims for research to be more widely acknowledged, guided in meaningful directions, and ultimately more effective in contributing to positive responses to climate change in Bangladesh.
