Dr Dishan Kamdar, Vice-Chancellor, FLAME University, said, “Climate change is both an existential crisis and an unprecedented opportunity to move past status quo and to innovate and cooperate on devising solutions. Leading business groups and even the smaller ones in India are investing consciously in clean and green energy processes that will reduce the harmful effects of environmental pollution. Finding solutions to climate change will require a collaborative effort with significant roles for government, academia, industry, think tanks and the society at large.  FLAME University aspires to actively contribute to the ongoing climate conversations in the country through research, education and creating a platform for dialogue through this conference.”   

The impact of climate change is intensifying more rapidly than the predictions of scientists. India also has its own challenges with respect to climate change. Globally, India is being looked at as one of the major greenhouse gas emitters when the country wants to grow its economic prowess. In addition to this, India’s relationships with other countries and political scenarios at the global stage are seriously affected by climate change. Panel discussions during the conference will touch upon topics such as Public Policy (India’s Climate Change Policies), Environmental Studies, International Studies (The International Politics of Climate Change: Implications for India), Climate Change Policy, Adaptation & Education.

Some of the speakers/panellists at the conference include:

· Dr Abhay Jere, the Chief Innovation Officer for Ministry of Education, Govt. of India
