Mythbusting on energy and climate change
The International Vienna Energy and Climate Forum is a solutions platform to accelerate low- emission, climate-resilient development around the world. The Forum highlights the action- oriented steps required to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, helping to forge an inclusive pathway that leaves no one behind. The Forum is co-organized by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA) and the Government of Austria. The solutions platform facilitates multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder and inter-disciplinary dialogue to advance sustainable energy development while promoting inclusiveness and the empowerment of women and youth engagement.
Youth Solutions Days, designed by and for youth, in partnership with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforAll), WU Vienna and the City of Vienna bring together young people to discuss, learn and build capacity though an action-packed three-day agenda. Most of all, it meaningfully engages youth in the Forum.
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is the specialized agency of the United Nations for meteorology (weather and climate), operational hydrology and related geophysical sciences. WMO is dedicated to international cooperation and coordination on the state and behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere, its interaction with the land and oceans, the weather and climate it produces, and the resulting distribution of water resources.
As background, the World Meteorological Organization, leading authority on climate and weather, teamed up for a four-week social media to run in the lead-up to the International Vienna Energy and Climate Forum busting climate myths using information and data from WMO reports, such as: 2022 State of Climate Services (Energy) , Integrated weather and climate services in support of Net Zero Transition and 2022 State of Global Water Resources.
