Organization: Air & Waste Management Association
The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) will host an international conference on climate change, focusing on the dual goals of achieving a carbon neutral and resilient economy while at the same time adapting to inevitable climate change impacts.
This year’s virtual conference will address emerging policies and strategies for tackling climate change impacts, including mitigation, adaptation and resiliency, as well as global GHG policies and initiatives and innovative technologies. The event will highlight case studies and action plans to reduce and/or adapt to the impacts of climate change and review recent climate change data, and advances in policies that complement the global 2015 Paris Accord.
Abstracts of 200-300 words on these and related topics are being solicited from researchers, governmental organizations, consultants and industry at the local, state, and national level:
- Climate Change Mitigation – GHG reduction, measurements, inventories, and tracking, carbon neutrality, environmental justice issues
- Climate Change Adaptation and Resiliency – Evaluation of impacts, adaptation planning, sustainability indicators, near- and long-term strategies, successful projects
- Technical Analysis and Innovative Technologies – Climate change science, regional and local trends, renewables, sector decarbonization, and more
Abstracts are due July 19, 2021. Find the full Call for Abstracts and submission details at www.awma.org/climatechange.
