Webinar on climate change adaptation in India

April 17, 2015

 
April 17, 2015, Friday, 11 am – 12 pm (ISD).
 

Unusually  cold and long winters. Unseasonal rains in March. Some of the hottest recorded temperatures in May and June. Climate change is here, folks, and it’s going to hurt our environment, economy, livelihoods. 

 

As it will not be easily reversed, we need to adapt using localised mitigation practices. In India, expenditure on adaptation to climate variability is over 2.6 per cent of the GDP: Rs 70,000 crore. These costs will only rise.

 
The Webinar
 

Will touch upon the increasing frequency of extreme weather events in India, and unravel their linkages to climate change. It will take you through adaptation case studies and good practices from across the country. And it will provide you with some answers to a pertinent question: how are we going to marshal resilience against climate change? 

 
Who will it benefit
 

Students, NGOs, journalists, farmers and agribusiness professionals, and just about anybody willing to know about survival in today’s climates-stressed world.

 

The webinar is free, but seats are limited.
