Started in 2017, the NPTE Fora encourages knowledge exchange among members of the academe, local government units, youth, business and industry, civil society, gender and faith-based groups, and the general public on climate change-related issues, policies, and practices through plenary presentations and open discussions.
The topics relate to various adaptation strategies to build resilience to climate impacts, and areas with potential for carbon emissions reduction.
