Gujarat Maritime University and Gujarat National Law University will be organizing the International Conference on Climate Justice and Sustainable Environment (ICCJSE) 2023 from 24 to 26 March 2023.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Climate change has become an undeniable fact. The impact of anthropological and natural activities degrading the environment has unequivocally resulted in global warming, which may have triggered a ticking clock toward the global apocalypse ending life on earth as we know it. Climate change and global warming have caused a threat not only to human lives but also to the lives of flora, fauna, and even micro-organisms.
The increasing human population and needs have caused a significant increase in industrialization, commodification, and commercialization, which has led to environmental issues such as deforestation, waste generation, increasing GHG and Non-GHG emissions, freshwater and ocean degradation, etc. These environmental issues are responsible for rising sea levels, changing temperatures, Arctic melting, food scarcity, and damage to living organisms.
Arguably anthropologic interventions may not be the only cause of climate change natural causes also play a part. Forest fires, volcanoes, and earthquakes also affect the environment. Nevertheless, it is only with human intervention that we can hope to resolve the disastrous impact of environmental degradation. The initiatives towards disaster management, carbon trading, carbon sequestration, biotechnology, and clean energy, green building, may provide mechanisms to deal with the upcoming challenges from climate change.
The International Conference on Climate Justice and Sustainable Environment (ICCJSE) 2023 provides a stage for a plethora of ideas that can revolutionize the prevailing knowledge on climate change and provide a platform for discussion and the creation of new ideas. It provides an apt forum for bringing together scientific, economic, social, and legal experts working in academia, research institutions, industry companies, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies to deliberate on the urgent environmental concerns facing the entire planet and to give them an opportunity to share the recent scientific knowledge, management approaches, and engineering solutions for the dilemmas set by climate change.
