The German Centre for Research and Innovation (DWIH) New Delhi, together with its partners DWIH Moscow, DWIH New York and Supporters, is organising a Web-Talk Series on Cities and Climate.
Worldwide by 2030, about 70% of the world’s population is predicted to live in cities. The world's major cities will, therefore, have a crucial role to play in ensuring sustainability, improving resource efficiency, battling climate change, and reducing their overall environmental footprint.
Sustainable development is one of the key areas of Indo-German Cooperation, highlighted at the 2019 Inter-Governmental Consultations. With its annual Focus Topic ‘Cities and Climate’, the DWIH New Delhi is engaging extensively to address global issues related to sustainable development. This web-talk series will present good practices, international projects, research, and recommendations for cities to adapt to climate change. It will have panels with scientists, experts, decision-makers, and professionals across disciplines from India and abroad.
