Prof. Nakicenovic is member of the „Advisory Board on Energy and Climate Change“ at UNO


On June 17,  2009 Secretary General Ban Ki-moon launched a new group consisting of  international business leaders and experts, who will advise him on energy and climate change challenges, particularly in identifying key issues in the run-up to the major UN conference to be held in Copenhagen in December. Not only six internal experts, under the leadership of Kandeh Yumkella, Director General of UNIDO and UN-Energy Chairman, but also 17 external experts will consider ways to comprehensively address climate change and boost energy efficiency and clean production, with a focus on developing countries.


One of these experts is Prof. Nebojsa Nakicenovic (Institute of Power Systems and Energy Economics, Vienna University of Technology). He also is member of the faculty of the MSc program “Renewable Energy in Central & Eastern Europe” offered by the Continuing Education Center.


 “Global environmental change, caused by human activity, is presenting the scientific community and policy makers with unprecedented challenges. Particularly in more vulnerable, developing nations, where food and energy security, natural disasters and disease can inflict irreversible social and environmental damage,” says Prof. Nakicenovic.
