The University of Delhi recently announced that a School of Climate Change and Sustainability will be soon established by it under the Institute of Eminence (IoE) scheme. The aim of the school would be to train human resources to manage and solve the emerging climatic challenges.
While Professor C. R. Babu will be the director of the school, Professor Inderjit Singh will act as the Join Director. A lot of environmental changes have come forward in the past decade and DU aims to handle all these using a sustainable approach beneficial to all. The focus of this school of DU will be three folds: tackling climate change in a sustainable way, keeping national development in mind, and making DU a ‘world-class University.’
According to the statement issued by DU on June 13, the school will also collaborate with researchers from different DU departments and other Indian institutions to address issues like climate change-biodiversity-ecosystem services, climate change-water-agriculture-energy, climate-disasters-development, transportation-climate change-health, and climate change-migration conflict. Questions related to sustainability will be addressed with the correct approach.
The School shall be able to introduce more professionals in areas managing sustainable technologies relating to Energy conservation, Recycling, Waste Management etc.
