The seminar was aimed at showcasing and streamlining the approaches based on innovation and entrepreneurship as the drivers to create new knowledge, find new models of doing business and transforming good ideas into great products.

Since South Asia is highly vulnerable to climate change, with rising temperatures, changing rainfall patterns, and intensifying consequences such as storms and droughts, speakers and policy makers from the region will give a way out of how climate change challenges are being tackled in different sectors and related solutions could bring new business opportunities around them.
