Side Event

Climate change and the resultant calamities, their impact on Biodiversity: Ensuring inclusion of Biodiversity-dependent communities in all preparedness, adaptation and mitigation measures

National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights

Date and Time
15 October 2012 13:15 - 14:45

Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 11)

The event will look at the impact of depletion of biodiversity as one result of climate change, which is ultimately causing hazards/disaster situations, grossly affecting the Dalits who live in vicarious settlements, and subjected to caste based discrimination in disasters. It also would cover aspects of their precarious livelihood and dwelling conditions in this backdrop.
