ND-GAIN Represented at World Economic Forum's Summit on the Global Agenda

ND-GAIN Founding CEO Dr. Juan José Daboub participated in the World Economic Forum’s Summit on the Global Agenda as Vice Chair of the Council on Climate Change. The World Economic Forum Advisory Councils works on over 80 topics ranging from climate adaptation to economic freedom and topics for this year featured inclusiveness and youth job creation. Nearly 1,000 global leaders met in Abu Dhabi, UAE to address problems faced by people all over the world. Dr. Daboub stated: 

I am happy to see that metrics and measuring what matters have taken center stage at the WEF. Particularly on adaptation to climate change, tools like the ND-GAIN INDEX are reported to be used by private sector and civil society organizations to inform their business decisions and to provide inputs for governments on public policies related to food, water, energy and infrastructure.

The Forum looks to address this fundamental question: How do we drive change through collaboration?
