DFID CRISSA Regional Consultation (April 7-8, 2016)

Mr Jagat Kumar Bhusal, Chairperson, SOHAM Nepal attended the programme “DFID CRISSA Regional Consultation : Towards Greater Coordination among Climate Researchers and Policy Makers in South Asia”, which was held on 7-8 April, 2016 in New Delhi, India. Mr. Bhusal was invited as a panel expert in the programme.

The speakers at the event included leading experts in climate science, research and policy from Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India as well as bilateral institutions working on climate action in the region. Academic experts from international institutions were also among the presenters at the event.

The purpose of the event is to present the key policy relevant messages from these studies to a group of academics and policy-makers drawn from the South Asian region. While each of the research projects have generated technical reports and peer reviewed journal articles accessible to a technical audience, this event will attempt to reach out to decision-makers who are in a position to use these findings for enhancing the evidence base for decisions they need to make.

DFID’s South Asia Research Hub funded a suite of research studies on key climate challenges between 2010 and 2015 under its Climate Research and Information Services in South Asia (CRISSA) programme.
