Patna: Eminent environmentalists and experts on climate change on Wednesday held a brainstorming session at the Central University of South Bihar (CUSB) campus on major issues relating to climate change and its impact on Bihar.


Members of the Climate Change Innovation Programme (CCIP) and Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK, led by Simon Croxton, and the faculty members of CUSB's centre for environmental sciences headed by Pradhan Partha Sarthi discussed the existing scenario in detail. They decided to develop impact models for agriculture, water resources and health sectors.


The visiting team members advised the CUSB to lead the science and modelling part of the climate change study and share its results with the agriculture, water resources, forest and health departments. The CUSB was also assigned the responsibility of generating high-resolution climate data for extreme events like droughts, floods, heavy rainfall and temperature rise.


Sarthi said the DFID is helping in implementation of Bihar State Action Plan on climate change. The Centre for Environmental Sciences of CUSB is playing a major role in this activity.


Those who participated in the deliberations included CUSB vice-chancellor Harish Chandra Rathore and faculty members Joy, Sumana Bhattacharya, Ajay Kumar Singh and Abhishek.
