Climate change has emerged as one of the most critical determinants of the direction of the global economic shift and it is no longer just an environmental concern. Shifting weather patterns increase the risk of natural calamities all over the world and threaten food production. Rising sea levels can contaminate coastal freshwater reserves and have a serious impact world over. The most dangerous climate changes may still be avoided if we transform and transcend our current hydrocarbon based energy systems. Rational and adequately financed adaptation programs can forestall disasters and migrations at unprecedented scales.

India submitted its post 2020 'Climate Action Plan' to UN, under INDC (India's Intended Nationally Determined Contribution) specifying the strategy to combat Climate Change by 2030. India has pledged to reduce the amount of GHG emission per unit of GDP by 33-35% from its 2005 levels, increase the share of non-fossil fuels to 40% in the installed power generation capacity and increase its forest and tree cover to provide additional carbon sinks.

In this context ASSOCHAM has announced 5th SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT FORUM 2016 - Climate Change - Energy Efficiency - Waste Management on March 16, 2016 in New Delhi. This forum will provide opportunities to explore new, more efficient & cleaner technologies, renewable energy generation mechanisms, waste management implementation, technology transfer, capacity building, climate resilient infrastructure & development, transparency of action and support through participation of various stakeholders from Government agencies, Corporate Sectors, NGOs, Multi-lateral and Bi-lateral organizations, Academia, Research Institutes and Environmentalists.
