Project Name: Understanding Climate Change and Health Associations in India (UCHAI) Training Workshop
Client: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), USA.

The three-day workshop on ‘Understanding Climate Change and Health Associations in India’ (UCHAI) was held in New-Delhi, India. The initiative was supported by National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), USA. The workshop was attended by experts, policy-makers, academicians, researchers, practitioners and students from renowned institutions across the country. The overall goal of the training workshop was to build capacity of early and mid-career academicians, researchers, practitioners and students towards climate-proofing of the human health sector in the country. The focus of the capacity building workshop was on three core frameworks in dealing with Climate and Health issues, that is, vulnerability, adaptation and co-benefits. The workshop also covered other essential aspects such as policy research, skill building and networking. The project continues as a vibrant community of practice connected through social media, webinars, conferences and collaborative endeavors.
