South Asian Media Briefing on Climate Change, New Delhi

climate change

Date: November 24 - 25, 2010

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) organised the Second South Asian Media Briefing Workshop in New Delhi to discuss, debate and understand the subject of climate change: its science, impacts, adaptation and mitigation strategies, politics and global negotiations.  


The two-day Workshop was aimed at providing first-hand information on and understanding of the subject to journalists, straight from the key women and men in the field – the national negotiators, policy-makers, climate change experts, and civil society representatives. 

Journalists from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka joined us for the unique opportunity to interact with and be briefed by these people. 

The Workshop offered a chance to meet with editors and other journalists covering the subject in the South Asian region. Additionally, it  provided the framework and guidelines to prepare journalists for the forthcoming global meets on climate change.

    Electricity accounted for 57 per cent of total energy consumption during 2011-12 in India -- the building sector used up close to 40 per cent of this electricity. The share of electricity is expected to increase to 76 per cent by 2040. With efficient lighting, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and architectural design in our buildings, it is possible to save 30-70 per cent of energy. How can we cut electricity costs in our buildings?
