Climate Change Innovation and Resilience for Sustainable Livelihood
|Project Summary|| |
To advance knowledge on climate change innovation for building resilience and promoting sustainable livelihood, an international conference is being planned in Kathmandu, Nepal from 12-14 January 2015 with the joint effort of The Small Earth Nepal (SEN), Nepal, City University of New York (CUNY), USA, Colorado State University (CSU), USA, Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM)/Government of Nepal, Department of Livestock Services (DLS)/Government of Nepal, Agriculture and Forestry University (AFU), Nepal, and Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC).
The three-day conference will focus on approaches from the physical and social sciences to support economic development in mountain and lowland South Asia, which faces serious climate hazards along with food security, water, and soil management and environmental justice challenges. This conference will bring together eminent scientists, government officials, and development workers in nonprofit and for-profit enterprises to discuss promising new approaches for integrating science, policy, and action. We will stress innovative applications of scientific and technical research to promote rural enterprise and broad-based improvements in health, nutrition, and living standards.
