May 12th and 13th, 2016; Delhi: Attended Indo-Pak Track II Dialogue on Building Climate Resilience, Energy-Water Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction, organized by SDPI Pakistan and Development Alternatives India.

Both India and Pakistan are extremely vulnerable to climate change owing to their geographic location, large populations and low adaptive capacities. As a result of their vulnerability, they are already experiencing the negative impacts of climate change. These impacts are particularly stark in the context of water security, energy security and disasters caused by extreme weather events.  As more and more research emerges suggesting that the economic, social and environmental impacts of climate change in these areas could potentially be devastating, India and Pakistan are recognizing the importance of building their resilience to climate change.

Track II dialogue was organised to discuss what measures exist and could be taken by the two countries, both individually and collectively, to build climate change resilience. Based on two days discussions The Delhi Declaration was made.
