As a part of the program, climate change knowledge portal (www.climatechange.mp.gov.in) is being developed into a dynamic platform providing robust scientific information that departments / research & academic institutes can use to incorporate climate impacts and vulnerabilities in designing policies and interventions by enhancing access to relevant climate data.
In this context, a one-day workshop was organized on 12 June 2018 from 9:30 AM in Hotel Jehanuma Palace for the launch of Climate Information Dashboards for MP. Around 30 participants representing officials from various concerning departments, MPCoST, academicians, research institutions, PhD scholars, etc. participated. The workshop also gave an opportunity for a hands-on training to the participants to develop and create their own dashboards.
