The Global America Business Institute (GABI), in collaboration with the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER), will discuss and present information on “Inclusive Development & Climate Change: Implications for the Private Sector,” with Dr. Arun Kashyap as the guest speaker.

As development and economic growth continue throughout the world, implications for the private sector become even greater, particularly with respect to climate change and clean energy innovation. Dr. Arun Kashyap will present on how to integrate analysis and implement evidence based initiatives, create partnerships, and innovate to foster equity, strengthen welfare, and build resilience for marginalized households and communities in developing and middle-income countries within the confines of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, as the international community works to develop and deploy alternative, clean energy.

Since 2000, Dr. Kashyap was associated with a number of highly visible UN programs to achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Business Call to Action (BCtA), strengthening rule of law, enhancing access to justice, building social cohesion, combating climate change, and sustaining resilience for equitable and human rights based development.
