EPICC – East Africa Peru India Climate Capacities: Second Stakeholder India Workshop
Panel discussions at the workshop will focus on causes of climate change, weather forecasting, monsoon predictions, adaptation, and migration.
The aim of the EPICC project is to enable the provisions of climate services and to build climate capacities in adaptation and mitigation science and practice together with the three partner countries: India, Tanzania, and Peru. The project is helping these countries to improve resilience against regional climate variability and climate change impacts by providing seasonal forecasts and long-term climate scenarios, and by assessing climate impacts in the water and agriculture sectors as well as implications for migration patterns. The EPICC project works through science-stakeholder dialogues, joint Indo-German research, publications and bi-directional research visits and exchanges.
About the Second Workshop
The Second EPICC Workshop in India aims at extending the contacts between the project researchers and the partners. To that end, the project team intends to discuss the partial results in order to assess their utility and acceptance by the partners. The project team also intends to discuss the possibility of research stays at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the realization of trainings in the partner institutions. Emphasis will also be given to the analysis of the water-food-energy nexus by the hydrology output and to the coordination of crops and adaption scenarios with regional Institutions.
