Today, when the impact of environmental problems and climate change is felt in most regions of the world, the green issues have climbed up the global agenda. Russia has followed the “green trend” as well, with Vladimir Putin taking part in the Leaders’ Summit on Climate 2021 and sustainable development goals finding their place in his annual Federal Assembly address and the new National Security Strategy of the Russian Federation.

Protecting marine and fresh water resources as well as biodiversity is a key global interest. Russia shares it with South Asian countries, including India and Sri Lanka, notwithstanding geographic and socioeconomic differences that determine specific problems and priorities most relevant for each of the three countries. Exchanging experience and best national practices, as well as working out common approaches could significantly facilitate the global task of protecting water and bio resources.

To address these and other related issues the Russian International Affairs Council (Russia), the Pathfinder Foundation (Sri Lanka) and the Asian Confluence (India) are organizing a trilateral expert dialogue «Impact of Climate Change on Marine and Fresh Water Resources and Combating Water Pollution».

The roundtable is to take place on July 30, 2021, at 14.00 (Moscow time) via Zoom. The working language is English. Please fill in the registration form to participate.
