28th October 2015, New Delhi
A Press Conference was organized by Mr. Anil Dave, BJP MP and Chair of the organizing Committee of National Consultation on “Global Warming and Climate change; A way Out,” to introduce the event. He said that we are doubtful that climate change negotiations will lead to a meaningful solution, therefore government of Madhya Pradesh has taken a lead in organizing national consultation as a part of Vaicharik Mahakumbh at Ujjain. He added that National Consultation is a part of series of knowledge summits being organized to promote the social, intellectual and environmental values of Singhastha Kumbh to be held in Ujjain. The National consultation will also lead to an International Consultation around Singhastha Kumbh in 2016. He said that we are hopeful that Indian thoughts, philosophy, practices and traditions will go a long way in suggesting the solutions.

Climate Crisis

Climate crisis has the potential to unexpectedly impact lives and development, and southern countries and communities dependent on natural resources are more vulnerable. Its interventions aim to bring urgency and adequacy in the mitigation and adaptation response of the governments and global community. It also works with vulnerable communities in strengthening their adaptive capacity. PAIRVI has engaged extensively with national and sub national policies on climate change as well as with international institutions like United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Conference of Parties (COP).
