Climate Congress Market Analysis and Reports | Japan Conference Series

Market Analysis - Climate Congress 2018

 Summary of Climate Change and Global Warming Congress:

Climate Change conference series is playing an important role to create awareness and providing a platform to share and discuss on different causes and effects of Climate Change on Earth. World’s average surface temperature has increased by around 0.6 degrees Celsius over last 100 years. It is mostly due to pollution, greenhouse gases and depletion of the ozone layer that protects the earth. Global warming is one of the main factors of climate change, leading to excessive flooding, forest fires and rise in global temperatures. Scientists predicted that due to on-going activities contributing to global warming, the average global temperature could increase between 1.4 and 6 degrees Celsius in the 21st century. We are inviting the whole world to gather at a single platform and to discuss the challenges and solutions to tackle Climate Change.

Scope and Importance of Climate Science Research:

The study and research on Climate Change is unlimited. The scope of Climate Change and Global Warming includes, Climate Change and Climatology, Climate Change and Global Warming Evidences, Pollution and Climate Change, Climate and Energy Policy, Carbon Farming, Natural Hazards and Disaster Management, Carbon Capture and Sequestration, Climate Change: Biodiversity Scenarios, Global Warming Effects and Causes, Oceans and Climate Change, Climate Change and Health, Sustainability and Climate Change, Renewable Energy to Mitigate Climate Change, Green Initiatives, Products and Climate Change, Climate Hazards, Climate Refugees, Climate Refugees, Climate Change Economics, Climate Change and Coastal Stressors, Carbon Cycle, Climate Change Solutions, Effective Adaptation, Climate Change Challenges, Greenhouse Gases and Ecology and Ecosystems. The scope of the meeting is to bring Climate Scientists and Environmental Scientists to evaluate the consequences of human-driven disruption of natural system.

The importance of Climate Change and Global Warming research is to evaluate the different kinds of effects of Climate Change on Earth and to find the solutions for it, so we came up with a theme “Tackling Climate Change for a Sustainable Future.

Why is it in Osaka, Japan:

Osaka has emerged as a global city and business hub of the Asia-Pacific, apart from that the Japan government has special concern on Climate Change, as follows:

Climate change is an issue that requires immediate actions by international community. Based on the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), adopted in 1992, the Conference of Parties (COP) has been a pivot for active discussions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the global level every year since 1995. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has actively participated in the negotiations on climate change in coordination with other government offices such as the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Economic, Trade and Industries in an attempt to maximize its national interest in this important area.

The Paris Agreement was adopted at COP21 in Paris, France in December 2015 as a new international framework for greenhouse gas reductions in the post-2020 period. This agreement is fair and applicable to all Parties, which is what Japan had advocated since the adoption of Kyoto-Protocol. Japan will work with other countries to develop guidelines for the Paris Agreement to realize effective greenhouse gas reductions by all Parties.

Market Analysis on the Climate Change Research:

According to the Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment Report 2015, the share of global investment accounted for by developing countries rose from 49% in 2014 to55% in 2015, with the dollar commitment at $155.9 billion, up from $131.5 billion the previous year. Developed economies invested $130.1 billion, compared to $141.6 billion in 2014.

The estimations for the needed financing for climate change vary according to the geographic, sectorial and activity coverage, timescale and phasing, target and the underlying assumptions. The 2010 the World Development Report preliminary estimates of financing needs for mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries range from USD 140-175 billion per year for mitigation over the next 20 years with associated financing needs of USD 265-565 billion and USD 30 – 100 billion a year over the period 2010 - 2050 for adaptation. The International Energy Agency’s 2011 World Energy Outlook (WEO) estimates that in order to meet growing demand for energy through 2035, USD 16.9 trillion in new investment for new power generation is projected, with renewable energy (RE) comprising 60% of the total.

Funding Opportunities:

Many funding agencies or organizations are providing funds for the researchers to complete their projects. Examples like US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funds climate change research grants to improve knowledge of the health and environment effects of climate change, and provide sustainable solutions for communities to effectively manage and reduce the impacts of a changing climate. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) supports a variety of human health and climate change related research, both internally and through grant programs.
