Eminent scientist Professor Tim Flannery will be one of the key speakers at this year’s conference

5 May 2018

Professor Tim Flannery has had a long career as advisor to government and business on climate issues, as well as being a broadcaster, a widely published author and a former Australian of the Year.

He will provide a keynote speech to the conference on the opportunities and challenges for PNG business in the low carbon economy of the future.

With the measures agreed to in the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement (to which Papua New Guinea is a signatory, alongside 195 other countries) that comes into effect in 2020, now is a perfect time to understand the implications for business.

Flannery is no stranger to PNG, having conducted ground-breaking scientific research in the country over several years.
