About Events

Recurring floods and droughts associated with climate change threatens the livelihood options of small-marginalized communities living in rain fed agricultural regions of North East India. The North Eastern region of India with diverse physiography and culture is a relatively economically backward region of India where small communities still live in close proximity to nature deriving their livelihoods from the natural resource base of the region. Consequently climate change makes them more vulnerable as there is an inextricable link
between agricultural productivity, food security and livelihoods of the people in the region. It is in this context that the proposedNational Seminar will address issues pertaining to Climate Change, Food Security and Livelihoods of South Asia in general and India and North Eastern region in particular. The proposed sub themes of the seminar include the following but not exclusive to these issues:
=> Trends and Pattern in Climate Change- Meteorological Issues
=> Climate change and agricultural practices
=> Climate change and crop production
=> Climate change and Vulnerability
=> Climate change, food security and sustainability
=> Climate change and adaptation
=> Climate change and livelihood practices
=> Climate change and health
=> Climate change and impact on forestry, fishing and rural livelihoods
=> Climate change and mitigation measures
