The India Climate Portal
The India Climate Portal is one of CSM’s several public service initiatives that promotes critical thinking about and fresh analysis of climate change and its impacts on India.
The Climate Change Discussion Paper series was launched by CSM in 2007-08 to provide a platform for fresh and challenging thinking on a range of issues connected to climate change in India. The objective is to deepen and broaden understanding of this vital subject in India through easily accessible and informative pamphlets. In turn, it is hoped this will contribute to a better-informed public debate and more progressive policy outcomes on climate change for India, her people,and neighbourhood.
So far the following 3 papers have been published by CSM:
- Disaster Management and Climate Change – Indian policy frameworks .Dhar Chakroborti January 2011
