Second National Research Conference on Climate Change Report

March 27, 2012

The Second National Research Conference on Climate Change was at held at IIT Delhi on November 5-6, 2011. Over 100 researchers/scientists from esteemed institutions participated in the conference and about 50 of them presented their research papers.

The conference aimed at developing an arena for promoting interaction among researchers, analysts and practitioners from across the country and to identify gaps in the current state of activities and research capabilities in the country. There were indepth discussions and presentations on different aspects of climate change such as impacts, mitigation and adaptation. Gap areas in research were identified and plans drawn up for future.
