Policy Analyses and Tools for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation

Workshop » Advanced/Other Courses » Policy Analyses and Tools for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation

05 Feb 2010 - 11 Feb 2010 New Delhi, India

 

The Climate Summit in Copenhagen in December 2009 was not as successful as desired in setting implementable targets for reducing climate change. It is important for researchers and professionals in South Asia to understand what the implications of the Copenhagen meetings are for climate policies in our countries. The target generally accepted for mitigation is to limit the global average temperature rise to 2 degree centigrade. There is some scientific evidence to indicate that a 2 degree rise in global average temperature may not lead to catastrophic climate change impacts, but will still have significant effects on vulnerable population. There is also growing concern that this target will be exceeded. Thus, what are some next steps and what should the more immediate research and training requirements be in South Asia in general and India in particular? In order to understand some of these broad issues SANDEE and TERI are jointly organizing a workshop on climate change in conjunction with TERI's Delhi Sustainable Development Summit 2010.
