Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled "Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am invited to a conference that does not exist. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of money. I will not get to the conference, because it never existed.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

Conference Theme: The Equation of Sustainability, Climate Change and Economics:

" Almost three years after the Lehman Brothers collapsed, we are still struggling to come out of this meltdown as another financial crisis threatens the world economy. Are we any safer than we were some years ago? How well paved is the road to recovery? Have we learnt our lessons from the global meltdown?" Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, UN General Secretary.

The recent United Nations Climate Change Conference has been widely perceived as a failure, while the consequences of global warming continue to mount. Weather patterns are changing radically, natural disasters grow more frequent and more devastating, sea levels rise, cultural and biological diversity becomes more endangered, and economic prosperity decreases. Despite two years of advance work, the meeting failed to convert a rare gathering of world leaders into an ambitious, legally binding action plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

More than 7,000 people responded to our June 2010 economic survey, which measured the impact of these difficult economic times on the nonprofit sector. Among respondents, nearly half were CEOs, executive directors, or presidents—our leaders in the nonprofit industry. The results are compelling:

- Some 40 percent of participants reported that contributions to their organizations dropped between January 1 and May 31, 2010, compared to the same period a year earlier.

- Eight percent indicated that their organizations were in imminent danger of closing.

- Sixty-three percent reported a total increase in demand for their organization' s services between January 1, 2010 and May 31, 2010, compared to the same period a year prior.

The International Fund for Sustainable Development-IFSDEV is holding the first largest and most diverse international gathering, dedicated to The Economic Crisis in its implications on sustainable development with a theme: The Equation of Sustainability, Climate Change and Economics.You are cordially invited to contribute to the success of this event with your effective participation.

The international community is now challenged by the severe impact on development of multiple, interrelated global crises and challenges, such as increased food insecurity, volatile energy and commodity prices, climate change, and a global economic crisis. The International Fund for Sustainable Development offers by far the best analysis of how the financial crisis will affect humanitarian and development funding and how to develop a counter-cyclical strategy building. The conference programme is dedicated to the current situation and offers an open international forum for the discussion of this topic. The aim is to establish new design perspectives and actions through dialogue with representatives from civil society, politics, economics, and science, individuals, etc.

The First 2011 IFSDEV Annual Conference and Steering Meeting will take place from:

Conference dates and locations:

•17th – 21st 2011 October in New York City, USA
• 24th – 28th October 2011 in Accra-Ghana

Participants are highly encouraged to attend the entire conference. This will give the best opportunity to exchange of ideas and to further develop the conference programme while enhancing the collaboration between the different participating institutions.

Venue: The conferences will take place in two selected different host countries: one in one in High Income Country (United States of America) and the second in a Middle and Low Income country (Ghana). The conference in New York – USA will take place at NYC Seminar and Conference Center. The conference in Accra-Ghana will take place at Accra International Conference Center (AICC). There are excellent hotels in nearby distances from these venues.

IFSDEV Background: The International Fund for Sustainable Development - IFSDEV is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan research institution devoted to the study of world economy and Sustainable Development. The Centre provides timely analysis, and concrete solutions to a wide range of international economic and financial problems. The pursuit of sustainable development requires adequate attention and interactions among the environment, society and the economy. As such, IFSDEV explores how the environment is valued; how public policy instruments can be designed better; and how abject poverty can be addressed sustainably. Background documents and information are available on the IFSDEV website.

Conference Methodology: The conference is organized as an open discussion forum and provides scope for participants to explore the ins and outs of the economic crisis and it implications on sustainable development. Presentations by acclaimed experts from different fields of knowledge during the first half of the conference will form the starting point of the subsequent discussions. In the second half of the conference, participants will be divided into groups to work out the core issues from the focus points of the conference. The results and recommendations from the groups will be presented in plenum, discussed and finally made available to the participants;

The Conference will also provide various opportunities to engage participants in sharing experiences and articulating perspectives on how to enhance their activities in the financing of their various projects, especially the NGOs/CBOs including round table panel discussions and break-out sessions, interactive dialogue, workshops, caucuses and other activities.

Call for papers:

The conference will welcome submissions from non-profits, NGOs, CBOs, CSOs, scholars, financial experts, policy makers, and other practitioners. Participants will be able to enjoy shows, attractions, activities, and tours available in host cities.

The following topics can be covered in your submission and presentation:

# The Economic Crisis and the Climate Change

# Where does the world’s climate now stand with respect to global warming? Are we already at or beyond the “tipping point” beyond which there is no return?

# What can economists tell us about the costs and benefits of mitigation policies? What measures are most efficient from an economic perspective and in terms of carbon reduction?

# The Impact of the Financial and Economic Crisis on MDG' s

# The Impact of the Financial and Economic Crisis on Developing Countries

# How can we best address the employment effects of these diverse climate proposals given the fragile states of the world economies?

# Proposals include cap and trade, carbon tax, development of renewable energy, new technologies, energy efficiency and changing the patterns of consumption.

# How does international policy ensure justice and fairness in global warming policy measures? To what extent do the proposed measures imply a just distribution of burdens and benefits for developing countries?

# If mitigation policies are too little and/or too late, what are realistic adaptation strategies that address the needs of poor countries and poor areas of rich countries burdened more than others?

# Any other related topic
