British Council’s UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) organized a “Climate Change event” to further strengthen and celebrate India-UK partnership on 21st November 2007 at British Council, 17, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, New Delhi. This event showcased Indo-UK linkages on climate change research and highlighted the innovations of various collaborative projects. Mr. Rod Pryde – Regional Director British Council (India and Sri Lanka) welcomed the gathering. Sir David King, FRS, Chief Scientific Advisor and Head of the Government Office for Science, UK gave the keynote address. This was followed by an address by Dr PS Goel, Secretary Ministry of Earth Sciences and Prof. Alan Thorpe, RCUK and Chief Executive, NERC.

Speaking on the occasion, Sir David King said, “This is an extremely important event as international cooperation in the area of climate change is critical. Through the UK India Education and Research Initiative we have established a step wise increase in the process of collaboration. 6 large scale projects and 60 small scale projects are already underway with a very promising and meaningful start in multiple areas through the initiative.”

The ready willingness and the keen interest shown by the scientists from both the countries in forging a joint collaborative research on monsoon related modeling and impact issues have culminated in to the development of a joint research program on the 'Science of Regional Climate Change, Variability and Impacts'.

We are also setting up a climate change centre at IITM, Pune and approvals within the Ministry of Earth Sciences are under way. This centre will support all researches and collaborations under the science of climate change”.

Prof Alan Thorpe in his presentation focused on the theme of partnership and wished the initiative all success.
