Former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan will deliver the keynote address at the World Climate Change and Wine Congress 2011.

The Nobel Peace Prize holder will be the ‘honoured guest’ at the Marbella-based event on April 13-14, the third of its kind following the 2006 and 2008 editions held in Barcelona.

Organised by The Wine Academy of Spain, the event is designed to highlight the effect of climate change on the wine industry and offer solutions to mitigate problems experienced.

Annan’s speech entitled Sustainability, Climate Change and the Corporate World will be delivered alongside more than 20 other speakers, with topics ranging from climate change to packaging, closures, transport, CO2 emissions, energy conservation and biodynamic vine growing.
