Institutionalisation of Capacities on Climate Change Studies and Action (ICCC; formerly NICCSA)

01 Jan 2016 to 31 Jan 2023


The Indian Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) is planning to establish a National Institute for Climate Change Studies and Action (NICCSA) to improve climate change cooperation between science, policies and actual practice. In the run-up to the founding of the institute, the project will support the MoEFCC in institutionalising and practically implementing climate research knowledge and competencies. Its future tasks will be distributed among various academic institutions (where required) and coordinated by an ICCC Secretariat (Institutionalisation of Capacities on Climate Change Studies and Action) which is supported by the project. The project succeeded in teaming up with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) as an international knowledge partner, which will conduct together with Indian academic institutions studies on current issues of climate science and policy in India.
