Webinar: Exploring the Nexus of SDGs and Climate Change through India’s Experience.
This webinar aims to discuss a comprehensive framework for assessing the overall risk related to climate change from India’s experience
This webinar aims to discuss a comprehensive framework for assessing the overall risk related to climate change and establish the interconnect between Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate change, focusing on India. We argue that understanding and addressing the interconnection between SDGs and climate change is crucial for effective policy-making and sustainable development. Actions to mitigate climate change often lead to positive outcomes across multiple goals, while neglecting climate change could undermine progress in achieving the SDGs.
Who should attend?
The webinar is of interest to regulators, industry professionals, developers, consultants, geologists , researchers and academics to scale up their knowledge by listening to the latest on SDGs and climate change through India’s experience.
Climate change will amplify existing risks and create new risks for natural and human systems It can increase disaster risk in various ways—by altering the frequency and intensity of hazard events and affecting vulnerability to hazards and exposure by decreasing the resilience of households and communities. These pose risks to both natural (such as forests) and socio-economic (such as agriculture and fisheries) systems. In this context, it becomes important to understand and map the components or drivers that determine the level of the overall risk of climate change-driven hazards such as floods and droughts at different spatial scales.

Dr Anamika Barua is a Professor at the Dept. of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, India. She also served as a visiting faculty member at AIT Bangkok from January 2022 to May 2022. Trained in Ecological Economics, her research aims to understand how political, social and economic factors shape environmental decisions and change, particularly related to water. Her research interest includes – climate change and water security, water utilities and water pricing, ecological footprints, virtual water flow through trade and water governance including transboundary water governance.
For the last ten years, she has been involved in academic and consultancy projects related to climate change and water issues in South Asia at multiple scales. An important area of her work has been translating research into policy and bridging the science-policy gap. She is an expert member of DST’s climate change program and was a member of the drafting committee of India’s new water policy constituted by the Ministry of Jal Shakti.
Prof. Barua has published her work in several international journals, such as the Journal of Regional Environmental Change, the Journal of Cleaner Production, Water Resources Research, the Journal of Hydrology, etc. Her recently edited book ‘Climate Change Governance and Adaptation: Case Studies from South Asia’ published by Taylor and Francis, brings together several cases from South Asia on climate governance and adaptation with an interdisciplinary approach across different scales: local, state, and national.
