Welcome to your UN House and to the 6th session of Bhutan Dialogues.
As you would have known by now, Bhutan Dialogues is an open space for dynamic conversations on issues of national interest and with the objective to listen, share and refine our ideas in pursuit of social progress. Our Theme for today is Bhutan Climate Action.
In line with the topic, let me briefly share some points for climate action.
During the course of the conversation today, we will discuss these issues more in-depth and share our views.
Our host for today is Dr. Karma Phuntsho from Loden Foundation.
Our guest speaker is Hendrick Visser from the Netherlands.
If I may suggest everyone present here today to keep their keeps questions short and to the point. However, I assure you that the longer questions will not go home unanswered. If you have longer questions to ask, please feel free to catch hold of our speakers over a cup of tea after the session.
After tea, I would like to invite people to come back in here to raise the game. We can answer your questions, have a discussion or simply just talk to eachother.
Last but not the least if you all could kindly suggest me the names of the speakers you would like to hear for the next Bhutan Dialogues session.
May I please request each one of you to please turn off your phone or put it on silent mode. Let us take a quarter of a minute to do it right away.
Lastly without further ado, let us now commence with our program.
Kadinchey and Tashi Delek.
