The Third National Research Conference on Climate Change will be held in Bangalore on November 3-4, 2012. The conference is being jointly organized by Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc), Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD), Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) and Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), under the banner Indian Climate Research Network (ICRN).

In the past three years, this research conference has become a very important platform for young researchers to come and present their work and share ideas with the larger research community at a national level. This year, over 90 researchers and scientists will present their work at the conference.

This event, the third in the series, intends to nurture and enhance a dedicated network of climate researchers.

This series aims to further develop the capacity of climate research and action by:
  1. Developing an arena for promoting interaction among researchers, analysts, and practitioners;
  2. Enhancing understanding of the current state of activities and research capabilities and thereby identifying key lacunae;
  3. Deepening and broadening engagement on the climate issue with a particular focus on smaller academic institutions, NGOs, and younger scholars;
  4. Strengthening a sense of ‘community’ among researchers;
  5. Exploring ways to more effectively link climate research and action programmes
