Climate Change Science and Policy in India and Nepal
May 10, 2019 - June 13, 2019
From May 10, 2019 to June 13, 2019, I participated in a Dialogue of Civilizations on Climate Change Science and Policy in India and Nepal. A Dialogue of Civilizations is a faculty-led summer program where students travel and take two courses. See more about Northeastern University Dialogue of Civilizations here.
Our dialogue was led by Auroop Ganguly and Kate Duffy, one of his PhD students. We started our journey in Kolkata, and ended in Kovalam. Over the course of the trip we stayed in 8 cities in both Nepal and India. We saw many UNESCO World Heritage sites. We sat for talks by about a dozen guest lecturers, including talks from economists, diplomats, and Mount Everest summiters.
