The Divecha Centre for Climate Change was established at Indian Institute of Science
in January 2009 with a generous financial contribution from Arjun and Diana Divecha
and the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment.
The primary goal of this centre is to understand climate variability and climate
change and its impact on the environment. The Center has undertaken outreach activities to create awareness among people and policy makers about climate change and its consequences.This has been done through workshops, lectures and quiz contests. An annual invited pubic lecture called the 'Jeremy Grantham Lecture on Climate Change' has been organized.
The center has identified technologies to mitigate climate change in collaboration with entrepreneurs and different engineering department in the Indian Institute of Science. The center is also working with Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College, London, on the impact of climate change on water.
Welcome to Divecha Centre for climate Change. There are several exciting developments
in research, outreach and mitigation going on at present.
I hope you find it interesting. If you have any suggestions please contact me.
