    This is perhaps the most important climate change event after Copenhagen and comes at a crucial time when the world has experienced one of the worst weather extremes (droughts and floods) in equal measure which need demonstrate the urgency for the world community to forge a partnership to fight a common enemy. The conference should provide a platform for all, individually and collectively, the political leaders, the civil society, private sector, the academia and the media, communities, poor or the rich who care about the future of our only planet to identify what must be done and focus their energies single mindedly to avert a crisis before it engulfs mother earth.
