About the Conference
The term "Climate Change" proposed by world Meteorological Organisation (WMO) in 1966 was incorporated in the title of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which now has become synonymous with anthropogenic global warming. Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century along with the increased global population and environmental degradation. It is no longer a scientific concern alone but involves economics, sociology, law and health which directly impact the global sustainability. The role of the Federal Government of India, Department of Industry and Mining, Department of Climate Change & Department of Environment and Forest, Educational Institutions along with start-ups and SME sector is of utmost importance in addressing the issues of Climate Change Impacts Management.Therefore, it is an apt time to deliberate on Climate Change Impacts Management.
·         To explore and to exchange state-of-the-art knowledge on climate change science, innovations, integrated approaches, adaptation strategies, disaster risk reduction, planning and management and vulnerability and impact assessment tools among regional stakeholders specifically in environment sectors
·         To gather scientific information, experiences and identify knowledge gaps on common, urgent and emergent issues related Climate Change
·         To identify location-specific knowledge (GUJARAT) and adaptation strategies that may be upscaled to other regions.
·         To promote National and International partnerships and linkages among different sectors for collaborative activities for Centre for Environment and Natural Resources being established under the aegis of Gujarat University- Park for Industrial Extension and Research (GU-PIER).
·         To provide a unique platform to eminent Professionals, Scientists, Researchers, Academicians, and Entrepreneurs across the globe to participate, present their real time work and share their expertise, research advancements and new technologies through oral and poster presentations, technical sessions, competition, debate and discussions.
·         To create awareness among all about the importance of Management of Impacts due to Climate Change.
Organized by
·         Gujarat University,
·         Forests & Environment Department, Govt. of Gujarat,
·         Industries & Mines Department, Govt. of Gujarat  and
·         Climate Change Department, Govt. of Gujarat
