Dear Sirs/Madam, Climate change is not a regional issue its global issue and there is need to take all round participation to ensure the policies to protect the environment. Such conferences and workshops are providing dais to the scholars and policy makers to think on the issue to find the innovative ways to trace out the problem. I would be happy to participate in the conference to share my bit of sharing. Regards. Sincerely Sharad Pant Director Human & Environment Care Association Amravati Maharashtra
