Climate Change Conference was held in Chennai

Climate Change Conference was held in Chennai

The Climate Change Conference was hosted by the Trade Commissioner of the Indian Ocean Trade Council, Hon. 
Vadamalai Subash, with the presence of the High Commissioners of Jamaica and Charge D Affaires of the Kingdom of Lesotho in Chennai on the 7th June. 
Hon. Subash discussed the potential disasters that the world and the Indian Ocean region might face in the coming decades, and how the decline of multilateralism and multilateral institutions has led to a lack of accountability among states in responding to global challenges. 
He appreciated the presence of the Jamaican High Commissioner HE Jason Keats Hall and the Charge D Affaires of the Kingdom of Lesotho, who participated in the dialogue of the multilateral body with the ability to promote cooperation.
Climate change and its implications for the Indian Ocean region remain the foremost issue that needs to be addressed. 

The Indian Ocean region is facing a continuous rise in sea levels, resulting in severe coastal erosion and frequent flooding in low-lying areas. 
The High Commissioner of Jamaica and the Lesotho Charge D Affaires honored the Trade Commissioner by giving the certificate of appointment and appreciating the cause of climate change. 
Jamaica signed to the Paris Agreement and became a party to the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change. 

They implemented a Climate Change Focal Point Network (CCFPN) and partnered with agencies such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Japan- Climate Change Programme to create Mitigation Actions. 

They also supported the School Garden’s Pilot Project in the implementation of drip irrigation systems, and the regeneration of school gardens and mainly supported the rehabilitation of the Montego Bay Breakwater Structures. 

Dr. Asif Iqbal, President of the Indian Economic Trade Organization, believes that through Indian collaboration we can create tools to be able to address climate change.
