About

5th ABU Media Summit on Climate Action and Disaster Preparedness, 25-26 April 2019, Kathmandu, Nepal The ABU flagship initiative moves to Nepal for its fifth edition of facilitating broad interaction between key players in climate change adaptation and saving lives and livelihoods. There is a widely shared sentiment that governments, international organisation and NGOs should actively support putting the media on the frontline of climate change adaptation and saving lives. That is the most efficient and cost-effective way of making climate action and disaster preparedness everybody’s business. The warnings from the scientific community can’t be more alarming. “The world is heading in the wrong direction to slow climate change after another year of near-record temperatures” – World Meteorological Organisation, 29 November 2018. This existential threat is confirmed by the UN Secretary General Guterres: “Climate change is moving faster than we are. It is a global issue we are all failing.”
