The objective of conducting the workshops is to build capacities to understand the multi-dimensional and complex nature of climate change.

Of these four workshops, two are directed towards building capacities of climate change practitioners from the social sciences, in understanding contemporary developments in climate science and the technical aspects of mitigation, adaptation and sustainable development. The first three workshops for scientists and social scientists have been conducted successfully with this being the last workshop in the series.

The workshop is aimed at doctoral students, teachers, senior researchers and professionals from the natural sciences and engineering disciplines working in areas related to climate change mitigation and adaptation.


The workshop will be two weeks long and will include lectures, discussions, case study presentations and short projects that participants will be expected to work on.


The workshop will cover political, social and economic issues related to climate change, aimed at an audience familiar with the technical aspects of the subject.
