When it was launched in 2010 there was a dire need to bring relevant and credible information on Climate Change close to scientists, practitioners, activists and the media. Through its daily bulletin ‘Climate Himalaya’ has been successful in making its present felt, nationally, regionally and globally. With our limited resources we have tried to do our best thusfar and endeavor to persist with our efforts, however, with a renewed vigor.
Based on inputs from our experts and suggestions by our readers, Climate Himalaya is poised for an image makeover and an improvised re-launch. We will discontinue our daily news service from Feb 1, 2015 and will instead issue a FORTNIGHTLY bulletin of INSIGHTS, REFLECTIONS and NEWS ANALYSIS.
Given that the world is trying to wriggle out of the emission-reduction impasse and with Paris Climate Summit in sight later this year, the need for a proactive stance will indeed be timely and meaningful.
We cannot do it without the active and sustained contributions from not only our experts but concerned researchers, scientists, activists, writers as well. While we shall try to reach out to such potential writers and thinkers, may we seek your support in our efforts in reaching out to your contacts and colleagues who wish to voice their concerns through the pages of ‘Climate Himalaya’.
You are all welcome and we look forward to hearing from you.
With best wishes for a Climate Friendly 2015.
