Appointed Chairman of WEF Global Agenda Council on Climate Change

Global Adaptation Institute (GAIN) has announced that its Founding CEO, Dr Juan Jose Daboub, was recently appointed Chair of the Global Agenda Council on Climate Change of the World Economic Forum (WEF). Dr Daboub served as Managing Director of World Bank Group from 2006 to 2010 and prior to that as the Finance Minister and Technical Secretary of the President of El Salvador.

Speaking about his new role, said Dr Daboub said: “It is a great honour to Chair the WEF Council on Climate Change. At GAIN, we understand the urgent need to adapt to global challenges to save lives and improve livelihoods of the world’s most vulnerable – this is one important perspective I will bring to the table. I am eager to work with others at the Council in developing a strategic direction and relevant outcomes to help guide this year’s Summit to actionable solutions.”

According to GAIN, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organisation, WEF’s Network includes the world’s leading global thought leaders from business, academia, government and civil society, with a network of more than 80 councils that provide insight and strategic recommendations to address critical global issues, such as adaptation. Findings of the councils inform WEF’s programming and set the direction for global, regional and industry agendas.

WEF’s Summit on the Global Agenda, avowedly the world’s largest brainstorming session that provides the intellectual framework for the development of the programme of the Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, will be held November 12 to 14 in Dubai, UAE.
