The future of human societies will be decided on how well we adapt, mitigate and create resilience towards the changing climate. For a megadiverse nation like India, strategies of climate adaptation and mitigation require a deep understanding of bio-geography and socio-cultural diversities. Even as we learn from other nations, Indian researchers must engage in research which considers this diversity.
Institutions within the Symbiosis International University (Deemed university) have the competencies needed to embark on interdisciplinary research, create effective learning programs, and engage in advocacy on climate action. We encourage associations and collaborations which are aimed at action research, project implementation and community participation.
The Centre envisions to be an outstanding contributor of research and knowledge, which supports national efforts of climate action and assists in the shift to sustainable pathways. Our goal is to create awareness in civil society of the roles and responsibilities of citizen.
The Centre engages in interdisciplinary and collaborative research focussing on India’s natural and social diversity. We provide a scholarly platform and cutting-edge research facilities for young researchers aspiring to work in the domain of climate action and sustainable development. The Centre offers an integrative environment for the diverse competencies within the Symbiosis International university, for facilitating the research towards a climate resilient future. We consider dissemination of knowledge to equally important in the transition to an ecologically responsible society. Towards this goal, the Centre closely engages with citizen through community participation programs.
