The Asia Pacific Climate Change Week is a series of lectures and discussions that provides an avenue in contributing to the Nationally Determined Contribution Implementation, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Global Climate Action. It aims to bring stakeholders from public and private sectors to become part of the initiatives created by the global climate change agreement in Paris.
