Conference on Climate Responsive Technologies

15th September, 2009 at
The Oberoi Grand Hotel, Kolkata, West Bengal.

This was a major programme of FOSET. In this programme, various aspects of climate change mitigation and adaptation techniques were discussed at length. Eminent scientists and technologists from different parts of the country participated in this program.  

Technology is always to be the most essential component to mitigate climate change. Without any concerted effort from the part of public and private sectors any effort to reduce greenhouse gas emission with not produce the desired result. Climate change is the most serious challenge human society has ever faced and the business houses have already realized the gravity of the issue. Reduction of carbon footprint from the industries and other relevant sectors not only helps to improve the environment but also into increase in profit from the business. With the save environment actions gaining momentum among common people, it is now high time to explore novel technologies and share knowledge among the stakeholders to keep their consumer base intact. There are a number of activities those can be taken into consideration. Some of those are too simple and some are more challenging. Pattern of investment and time required for adaptation of technologies varies from sector to sector. However they all necessitate action with firm commitment to succeed and continuous improvement.

The sectors being reckoned as major contributors of global climate change are:

a) Energy, (b) Transportation, (c) Construction, (d) Agriculture 

This conference provided a platform to the industry houses, stakeholders of the businesses, and the scientists and technologists to share their ideas, exchange the best practices followed so that steps towards adopting Climate Responsive Technologies are initiated from this auspicious Engineers' Day.
