Emphasizing the essential role of research, the forum aims to create actionable knowledge tailored to local socio-economic and environmental needs. CCLF 2024 stands as a key platform for researchers to shape policy and practice, fostering climate resilience and sustainable growth through region-specific solutions.

The Forum, scheduled for October 23rd to 25th, 2024, will initiate with an Inaugural Day, featuring key opening remarks and foundational discussions. The subsequent day, termed the Scientific Day, is allocated for the presentation and critical evaluation of academic contributions and research in the field.
