welcome

Climate Policy Network (CLIMATEnet) is a website dedicated to sharing ideas, information, insights, news and resources on how to face the challenge of climate change. It is launched by the Institute of Policy Studies of Sri Lanka (IPS). While its main focus is on South Asian region with particular attention on Sri Lanka, it is open to views and ideas on climate change policies from anywhere in the world that can make a useful contribution to the dialogue .

Climate change is a global problem that all nations are destined to face together. It is a complex problem demanding complex policy interventions to address multiple issues.This calls for combined action of all countries throughout the policy making processes. The CLIMATEnet is thus aimed at creating a dialogue on different aspects of climate change policy. The ultimate goals of this exercise are to inform policy makers on better strategies and to create awareness among stakeholders on different aspects of the challenges faced.

CLIMATEnet looks forward to build up a fruitful collaboration with professionals from all relevant disciplines on the basis of mutual benefit and cooperation. It aims to improve outreach to various stakeholders and build linkages necessary for a fruitful policy dialogue. In this connection, CLIMATEnet welcomes and appreciates contributions by all who wish to participate in this important dialogue.
