On Friday 3 May, amfori will co-host the Multi- stakeholder Forum: Climate Change – Mitigation and Adaptation in Mumbai and Maharashtra
While exact amounts are subject to debate, the warming of the climate system is scientifically proven. Scholars agree that the steady increase in greenhouse gas emissions leads to irreversible changes in the climate system, the dominant driver for this process is man-made economic activity. In India, this has already led to a rise in mean temperatures. More frequent heat waves would strongly endanger food security and coastal areas and cities like Mumbai would become more vulnerable to sea water intrusion.
Together with the institutions of Indo-German Chamber of Commerce, Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Heidelberg University South Asia Institute and Global Shapers Community Mumbai Hub, amfori wants to raise awareness about this topic and support the search for solutions.
Date: 3 May 2019
Venue: Tata Institute of Social Sciences, V.N. Purav Marg, Deonar, Mumbai
The Forum brings together representatives of the economy, academia, politics and the civil society. Using the World Café method, people will come together in diverse groups for short but insightful discussions. As a participant you will:
- Identify driving factors of climate change in selected economic sectors,
- generate ideas for the mitigation of climate change,
- share insights on inevitable effects of climate change on Mumbai and Maharashtra and how to adapt to them.
The full agenda is available here.
