CONFERENCE PATHWAYS

Our ICEM ‘pathways’ are new for 2019 and help guide delegates with a specific interest or focus to navigate the programme. Delegates who register for the full conference will be able to take advantage of these pathways.

We have four pathways for ICEM 2019 which can be explored using the expandable sections below.

🌍 Africa Pathway

The ICEM2019 Africa Pathway highlights the presentations that will focus on the climate & energy research that has been taking place on this amazing and diverse continent.
