Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Ajman, the Municipality and Planning Department and the Organizing Committee are inviting researchers to submit their research proposals to the Ajman 5th International Environment Conference (AIEC2018).

The conference will be held on March 06-07, 2018 at Sheikh Zayed Centre for Conferences and Exhibitions of Ajman University, Ajman, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The conference will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Ajman.

AIEC2018 will be centered around the subject of Climate Change Challenges and Adaption. All three levels of government in UAE (federal, provincial and municipal) have completed or are nearing completion of Climate Change Action Plans that provide roadmaps for the country to meet its Paris Accord commitments.

The conference features engaging breakout sessions that will reignite passion for innovation and showcase the practices that are being implemented across the business and technology space. It will also be an excellent opportunity to connect with colleagues and exchange ideas, gaining valuable expertise needed to contribute to current or future research on green practices, eco-efficient technologies, managing the carbon footprint, and supporting the expansion of environmentally friendly and sustainable initiatives.

Why “Climate Change challenges and adaptation”?

Climate change is the most complex issue facing our planet today. Many dimensions such as science, economics, society, politics are involved and cause a global problem, felt on local, regional and global scales, that will last for decades to come. Despite if we stopped emitting all greenhouse gases today, global warming and climate change will continue to affect our future generations. In this way, humanity should be committed to some level of climate change and the UN successfully reach to a global treaty in COP21 in Paris followed by Cop22 in Marrakesh to mitigate and adapt the climate change impact on the planet.
