TIMS-09 (Technology Innovation & Management for Sustainable Development 2009)
International Conference on Climate Change & Sustainable Management of Natural Resources
10-12 November 2009
Organized by: ITM Universe Campus, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India
Sponsored by: Global Development Network (GDN)
Since industrial revolution from mid 19th century, environment and natural resources have been exploited severely by human population. Presently degradation of environment and natural resources is posing the greatest threat to the globe. Earth is warming at an unusual rate. Evidence of warming is present in different forms. The most obvious is data of temperature records. There are many temperature —dependant phenomenon that also indicate the earth is warming. Earth’s mountain glaciers are melting. Antarctica ice sheets are breaking up, and sea level is rising. The temperature of the global oceans is rising. Northern hemisphere permafrost is melting. Arctic pack ice is thinning and retreating. The tree line in mountain ranges is moving upward.
Scientists suggest that the cause for increase in atmospheric CO2 and ultimately for planetary warming is from anthropogenic activities. The main sources for the increased CO2 are the combination of burning fossil fuels, deforestation and de-vegetation to clear land for agriculture.
Objectives of the Conference
- It will examine evidences and causes of climate change (natural & anthropogenic)
- Impact of climate change on humans and ecosystems
- Mitigation of climate change through technological, social, ethical and political responses.
