Climate is for ever changing. Yet, over the past decade, concern over possible changes in the planet's climate has come to dominate the popular and scholarly discourse. At the same time, the scientific debate has intensified on the nature and possible causes underlying changing climate. Questions have arisen over the significance of man-made green house gases in stimulating global warming. Science progresses through such rational criticism and objective discourse, and not through consensus invoked by any authority. Given the open ended nature of science, public policy responses need to recognize the diverse economic preferences of people, and assess the varying technical viability of different proposals. A healthy intellectual climate is vital to our understanding of the planet's climate.
The Seminar is intended to deliberate upon different aspects of impact of climate change on agriculture in India, the steps that can be taken in order to mitigate the negative impacts and the possible adaptation measures.
