The workshop aims at a capacity building by sensitizing academicians, engineers, policymakers and researchers on the science of climate change, assessment of its impact, adaptation and mitigation strategies for sustainable development. The research gaps and challenges involved will be specifically addressed.
It is necessary to quantify the impacts of climate change on the hydro-meteorological processes, that are used for decision-making pertaining to agricultural water management, hydro-meteorological hazards, in particular, droughts and floods under climate change scenarios. The broad consequences of climate change are of serious concern to the local population. Keeping this backdrop in mind, the above workshop is being organised.
The workshop is being organized by IIT Bhubaneswar, which is a public engineering institution established by the government of India in 2008, located at Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. It is one of the eight new Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 2011
The workshop will address relevant topics such as hydrologic impacts of climate change in eastern India including the coastal regions; use of primary and secondary datasets of hydro-meteorological variables; impacts of climate change on hydro-meteorological extremes (droughts, floods, extreme weather events).
