About the Workshop
Climate change is the most important challenge that the globe is facing today. Agriculture and rural development under changing climate are facing monumental challenges. Proposed workshop deliberates on climate smart agricultural technologies and their roles in overall rural development of developing countries like India.
This three day workshop will allow the participants to get exposed to various aspects of technological interventions for developing a climate smart agriculture (CSA) and rural ecosystem. These technologies cover wide areas of rural mechanization, natural resources management, agricultural engineering, biotechnology, sanitation etc. which are relevant for overall sustainable rural development.
- State of the art knowledge dissemination on climate change and its impact of agriculture and rural development.
- Making the participants aware about the roles of S&T for facilitating the Climate Smart Agriculture and Rural Development.
- Identify challenges faced by individual researchers working on rural technologies especially in TEQIP III focus areas.
- Identify ways to support the work of the faculties and young researchers from the target areas.
- Creating possibilities for new collaborations.
The workshop/event is open to faculty members and research scholars from all TEQIP mapped institutions/ Engineering Colleges/ ATUs and non-TEQIP mapped institutions.
No course fee is charged for candidates who belongs to TEQIP mapped institutions/Engineering colleges/ATUs.
Participants from Industry, Government organizations and Non-TEQIP mapped institutions are eligible, provided they pay the course fee of Rs. 5000/- for faculty members and Rs. 3000/- for Research Scholars and Postdoctoral Researchers respectively.
