About the Event  | Brochure

Currently countries across the world have been witnessing frequent occurrences of natural calamities such as cyclones, thunderstorms, cloudbursts, tsunamis, earth quakes, melting glaciers, rising sea levels, droughts, diseases etc. They cause huge loss of human lives and economy which is estimated as 2% of world GDP as per World Bank’s report. The impact would be more disastrous for developing countries including India more particularly the Himalayan states (U.K, H.P, Bihar, J&K, Assam,) and Coastal states (Odisha, A.P, T.N). The scientific research proves that the frequent occurrences of them are the outcome of the ‘Global Warming (GW)’ and resultant ‘Climate Change (CC)’. Unless remedial measures are taken in time, the frequency of calamities would rise and the impact would be more disastrous in future across the world.
 
As per World Bank’s recent report on Climate Change,” Climate change is a fundamental threat to sustainable economic development and the fight against poverty”. ASSOCHAM fully shares this concern regarding the impending of poverty due to CC which can roll back decades of development.
