  • “Educate and raise awareness among the ASEAN countries about the adverse effects of disinformation on climate change.
  • Offer a platform for experts to exchange their experiences, knowledge, and best practices for countering climate change disinformation.
  • Explore the potential of new digital communication technologies and AI in addressing disinformation concerning climate change.
