Sci. & Training Workshop: Climate Change over High Mountains of Asia


A science and training workshop on the theme “Climate Change over the High Mountains of Asia (HMA)” was held at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune during 8-12 October 2018. This workshop was jointly organized by the Centre for Climate Change Research (CCCR), IITM, the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), New Delhi, Divecha Centre for Climate Change (DCCC), Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru and the Monsoon Asia Integrated Research for Sustainability - Future Earth (MAIRS-FE) at DCCC. The overarching goals of this workshop were envisaged towards integrating the regional climate downscaling activities, facilitating cross-fertilization of scientific expertise and engaging the community of Asian scientists for further capacity building pertaining to the HMA. These goals would benefit the development of appropriate inputs for further exploitation of the science-based climate information, with higher-level of confidence using model-based projections and knowledge of regional / local experts, by the Vulnerability, Impact and Adaptation (VIA) community.
