Dialogue Forum 4 Year 3 (in Thai) “From Glasgow to Egypt, COP 27 and Implications on Thailand’s Climate Policies and Actions?”

November 24 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

In times when society has become widened with gaps and differences of views and opinions, one issue could be escalated into a crisis if there are no platforms available for appropriate discussion among all concerned. The media, while informing and inspiring their audience, could also take a role in educating and facilitating the public by providing such platforms, bridging the gap and connecting the dots to create one big picture for better understanding in the society.

Realising such critical roles, Bangkok Tribune, in collaboration with its partners and with the support of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, Thailand Office, has therefore come up with a monthly forum on issues of importance under the project, Dialogue Forum. This is to facilitate and provide a space for discussions and exchanges of dialogues and views regarding critical social and environmental issues and policies both in Thailand and the Mekong region. It not only bridges the gap but also connects the dots, helping forge better understanding among the parties concerned and the public at large, therefore encouraging them to make a better decision about the issues or even find a common ground and seek solutions together.

Over the past few years, the forum has invited a number of parties to come and discuss the issues at the forum; several of them are scholars and leaders in their fields. They have reached some common grounds while recommendations and new policies have been proposed for issues of importance such as Green Recovery in Post Covid-19, Climate Change policies, biodiversity in crisis, dam development in the Mekong Basin, and others.

Following the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) held in Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt from November 6 to 18, the Parties of the Conference have made another attempt to fulfil what promised in Glasgow last year including the net-zero emission to try to cut down the temperature rise while curtaining climate impacts through various initiatives including the Loss and Damage deals.

The Dialogue Forum would cordially like to invite you to update the progress made at the conference as well as learning its implication on teh future climate policies and actions at the fourth forum of this year, Dialogue Forum 4 I Year 3: From Glasgow to Egypt, COP 27 and Implications on Thailand’s Climate Policies and Actions (in Thai), on November 24, 2022, 10.30 am-1 pm at SEA-Junction, 4 th Floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC)
