Climate affects the natural environment where human beings live and survive, and the essential resources for the sustainable economic and social development. Climate change has left noticeable impacts on global food security and water security and on the global sustainable development as well. Both climate and environment changes have drawn unprecedented concerns of national governments and many communities, and great attentions of international organizations. Since climate change has become a critical global challenge it is, therefore, calling for the urgent response of international communities. The GGS colloquium will focus on topics related to climate change and Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus and provide opportunities for “scientific thinking”.
