27-29 March 2015, Kolkata
The St. Xavier's Global Earth Summit IV a 3 day International Conference on Global Climate Change and Water Disasters, concluded today.
The conference, the first of its kind where Jesuits from around the world participated discussed the threats posed by the twin threats facing mankind - Global Warming and Climate Change - and the ways and means of creating a response system with a view towards their mitigation.
The special emphasis of the conference was on water - whose boon and bane has risen to sharper focus as a direct and perhaps most threateningly potent fallout of the changing climatic patterns.
The Conference was organised by the Department of Environmental Science, St. Xavier's College, Kolkata; in association with the Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat (SJES), Rome;
Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA), Kolkata and the Collectorate, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal. ITC India was the title sponsor to this event
