Warm greeting from BSS family!
The Prime Minister's council on Climate Change announced in 2008 the need for India to formulate a National Action Plan on Climate Change. The core of this Plan comprises eight National Missions. The implementation of the Plan would depend on 'institutional mechanisms suited for effective delivery of each individual Mission's objective and include public - private partnership and civil society actions'. As a part of this initiative, the Ministry of Environment asked all State Governments to prepare State-level action plans.
With the blessings of many eminent Ganga Putra we are organizing a solution-focused National Workshop at Akhil Bhartiya Sanskrit Parisad, Lucknow on 28th and 29th October 2011. Our motto is that a workshop is for focusing on climate change issues in Gangetic river basin. Thus, we invite all experts and valuable talent pool of professionals who are interested and able in putting together a detailed action plan (one that is technically, logistically, financially, and scientifically sound) along with alternate models for making Ganges and her tributaries free-flowing, clean and natural.
We have categorized our sessions into seven thematic areas for drawing the action plan, which are as follows:
I. Ganges Greenhouse Gas Inventory
II. Climate variability and climate change projections in Ganges River basin
III. Impact on Forests in Gangetic region
IV. Impact on Agricultural Sector
V. Impact of Climate Change on Water Resources
VI. Socio-economic Vulnerability and Adaptive Capacity Assessment: An Analysis
VII. Mitigation options in energy sector
To help us make this meeting most effective, we kindly request you to prepare a document that is short and concise 1-2 page write-up on your ideas and please email it to us by October 10th 2011, (firstname.lastname@example.org). This document can include suggestions and specific areas of focus within each theme. We will take a look at it and give you our feedback by October 15th, 2011 to further guide the process of coming up with the best plan and starting positive action during the National Workshop at Lucknow.
Looking forward to working together with you where we can all use our experience, expertise and energy to help conserve and protect Mother Ganga.
In divine love and service of Maa Ganga,
