The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Who Will Pay for Today’s Environmental Challenges?
If we indeed are talking climate, then what matters for climate is accumulated greenhouse gas emissions. This is a matter of principled importance. Not achieving the notorious zero, but accumulated emissions. In this respect, the goals set by the President are particularly relevant, and with such goal-setting Russia can reach this objective by implementing a series of technological steps that we have also discussed, provided, of course, there is sufficient investment and a good investment programme. This is that very technological re-equipment and that very structural modernization we need

Economy vs. Climate: Lessons in Adaptation
Adaptation is a process of various complex measures that, on the one hand, adapt, take into account the risks that arise for the people and the economy due to climate change, but on the other hand, they use the few favourable opportunities that the climate change creates. And that is where there is a big difficulty with making good economic decisions that, on the one hand, would take into account the negative change, and on the other hand, would properly take advantage of the positive change
