About Climate Change Sector

About Climate Change Sector

Over the last decade, extreme events like floods in Assam, Chennai, Kedarnath, Srinagar and Surat; cyclones Hud Hud and Phalin, heat waves in Ahmedabad, Bhubaneswar and Kolkata have crippled economies, damaged infrastructure, led to loss of lives and livelihoods. These have raised debates on our planning, development paradigms and the exposure of vulnerable population to current risks. Intensification and magnification of events due to climate change are likely to amplify the impacts on human lives, agricultural productivity and economy.

We are a leading firm in undertaking Muti-Hazard Risk and Vulnerability Assessment and preparation of Composite Risk Atlas in South Asia. The Gujarat Hazard Risk and Vulnerability Atlas and Multi- Hazard Risk Assessment in Myanmar are internationally recognized peer reviewed publication and GIS assisted planning framework developed by TARU.

We are India country partner for the “Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network,” which is first of urban climate change initiative that focuses on assessing climate change related risks to cities across four countries (India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam), and building resilience to a changing, challenging urban environment.
