India’s global initiative on Climate Change

Published 16th November 2010 - 0 comments - 955 views -

The global climate change concern, which mostly brings into news the statements and agreements made by the diplomats and convoys of the nations often overlooks the arrangements made at the lower levels. The global phenomena which needs to be addressed through every single crevice asks for something more than hand-shakes and mere words on paper.

Following the same philosophy, India's efforts directed towards making it as a global destination for training and research on the contemporary global concerns needs recognition. Well implemented initiatives taken by Ministry of External Affairs, the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme and Special  Commonwealth Assistance for Africa Programme (SCAAP) have directed much needed resources to approach the problem in a more conventional way; through Education.

TERI University, located close to New Delhi offers a variety of courses on understanding the climate change, mitigation, adaptation, energy efficiency and sustainable development. The ITEC-SCAAP offers the global intercultural class a variety of courses at the cross roads of development and the environment. The courses stretched over the duration of two-six weeks cover national and international responses and policies on climate change, strategies for sustainable development and similar other issues. Apart from the classroom training, the course structure manages enough room to take students for excursions and trips. It certainly brings a practical inference to the whole set up which is required to deal with the issue.
