Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Wednesday, 14 November 2007

Dr RK Pachauri, Chairman of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize-winning United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), will be a keynote speaker at PATA's 'CEO Challenge 2008: Confronting Climate Change'.

Decision-makers from both the private and public sectors of the industry will gather in Bangkok, Thailand, next April to be challenged over a day and a half of interactive discussions to agree and commit to practical climate change solutions.

"We are truly honoured to have Dr Pachauri on board the CEO Challenge," said PATA President and CEO Mr Peter de Jong. "His commitment to raising awareness of climate change and proposing actionable solutions will provide welcome expertise to this key event."

The IPCC is the co-recipient (with former US Vice President Mr Al Gore) of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, to be formally accepted in December of this year.

As a respected academic and an articulate advocate of sustainable development, Dr Pachauri's participation will bring considerable substance and authority to the Challenge.

Hosted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), and organised in partnership with the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation and the Burba Hotel Network, PATA's 'CEO Challenge 2008: Confronting Climate Change' will take place in Bangkok, April 29-30, 2008.
