Climate Exposure: Projections and Scenarios for Coimbatore, Rajkot, Siliguri and Udaipur
Capacities of city authorities in four partner cities to plan and implement mitigation and adaptation measures are to be enhanced, as per the first intended outcome of the project. To achieve this, a few activities have been planned, out of which the study identifying climate change scenarios for 2030 and 2050, is being carried out.
Some of the highlighted tasks under this study include:
The outcome of the climate forecasting and scenarios study will be used to inform the city climate action plans that are currently being prepared. This information, hitherto not available with the city, will provide clarity on the type of climate change risks and the magnitude of these risks. This study will also provide the much-required context for the identification of climate vulnerable systems and populations.
The findings from the study will be published by January 2018.
