Adaptation Futures 2020 in India.
The Energy and Resources Institute will co-host the Adaptation Futures 2020 with the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP) in Delhi from April 27-30, 2020. It is the sixth in the Adaptation Futures international conference series on global adaptation and the first to be held in Asia. Adaptation Futures is the flagship event of the World Adaptation Science Program, which is one of the four components of World Climate Programme (WCP) based on the World Meteorological Organisation Congress XVI Resolution 18. As a premier event in the global adaptation spectrum, Adaptation Futures is a unique platform to facilitate dialogues towards action oriented solutions from a diverse range of stakeholders that includes academia, practitioners, scientists and policy makers from across the world.
India due to its high reliance on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture, water, and forestry for resources and livelihoods faces an urgent need for adapting to the risks posed by climate change. The country has been making significant efforts over the years to bring adaptation issues to the forefront in the evolving global climate regime. The Government of India has also formulated mechanisms to integrate adaptation action as part of the developmental process under the National and State Action Plans on Climate Change. India along with other developing nations, has been instrumental in putting forth a global goal of adaptation with an aim of enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability under the Paris Climate Agreement. While adaptation requires local and national set of actions, there is a need for significant global cooperation in meeting the resource requirements of developing countries. In this context, Adaptation Futures 2020 will be an ideal opportunity to give visibility to the adaptation requirements of developing and generate significant dialogues around actionable solutions.
