Climate Change, Facing the challenge beyond COP21

TIIKM Sri Lanka, welcomes all the researchers, academicians, scholars and activists to submit abstracts for the International Conference on Climate Change 2017 (ICCC 2017) which will be held on February 16th and 17th, 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka under the theme “Climate Change: Facing the challenge beyond COP21”.

ICCC 2017 will continue its momentum in 2017 to explore a platform to exchange ideas on Climate Change, discover new opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden their knowledge. chemists, physicists, biologists, material scientists, biomedical researchers, engineers, environmentalists, social workers and other researchers who are active at the frontiers of this diverse and multidisciplinary field are encouraged to spread knowledge through the ICCC-2017 which will act as a global platform.

“Bridging Nations for a GREENER TOMORROW….!”

“Different nations, Different cultures,  Different races, Different mindsets,

BUT One ultimate goal”


Keynote Speakers


Dr. Eleanor Milne
University of Leicester, UK

Eleanor Milne has over 20 years of experience working on various aspects of environmental management in the agricultural and land management sectors in developing countries. For the past 13 years her work has focused on developing tools to estimate the climate change mitigation potential of land management activities in developing countries. She coordinated the Global Environment Facilities (GEF) GEFSOC project which developed a system to estimate changes in soil carbon stocks at national and sub-national scale. She also coordinated the modelling component of the GEFs Carbon Benefits Project which has developed online tools to estimate the GHG impacts of land management activities. She currently holds honorary positions at The University of Leicester, UK (where she is based) and Colorado State University, USA. In July 2015 she took over as the Editor in Chief for Environmental Development, the transdisciplinary journal of SCOPE (the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment). She has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Biology from the University of Liverpool, UK, a Masters Degree in Crop Production and the Changing Environment from Essex University, UK and a PhD which considered ‘Soil conservation and maize productivity on sub-tropical red soils in Yunnan Province China’ from The University of Wolverhampton, UK. She has worked as a consultant, mainly through Colorado State University on projects for CCAFS, IFAD, USAID, CARE/The World Bank and UNEP.
