ICIMOD’s Asia Pacific Mountain Network (APMN) organised a Regional Media Workshop on Green Economy and Climate Change Adaptation from 2 to 4 November 2011 as a follow-up activity of the South Asia Media Workshop on adaptation to climate change organised in May 2011. The objective of the workshop was to familiarise media professionals with the different issues, challenges, options and opportunities with regard to the promotion of the Green Economy and Climate Change Adaptation in the region, including raising awareness of the International Mountain Day celebrations in December 2011, and Rio+20 meeting in 2012 among others. Twenty-six media representatives from seven of ICIMOD’s regional member countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan) attended the programme.
