Bangkok (NNT/VNA) – The Thailand Greenhouse Gas
Management Organisation (TGO) has been organising its fourth regional
conference on climate change for ASEAN member countries. 

TGO’s Climate Change International Technical and Training Center (CITC) is
holding the fourth CITC Regional Conference from July 17-19 under the
theme “Accelerating The Paris Agreement Implementation Through Climate
Finance, Technology And Capacity Building”.

Key topics include how to leverage financial
mechanisms, technological developments and capacity building to help ASEAN
member countries achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. One of the goals is
to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20-25 percent by 2030. 

Permanent Secretary for Natural Resources and the Environment, Wijarn
Simachaya, said the seminar is a good opportunity for Thailand to exchange
knowledge and promote regional and international cooperation on reducing
greenhouse gas emissions. The results of the conference will be used to help
agencies under Thailand’s Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment to
achieve their goals. 

TGO Executive Director, Prasertsuk Chamornmarn, added that Thailand established
the CITC at the beginning of last year to support efforts to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions under the Paris Agreement. The Paris Agreement also coincides
with Thailand’s reform plan for addressing climate change from 2015-2050.-NNT/VNA
