Climate change and India – a new free online resource
The Science and Development Network (SciDev.Net) today launches a free online resource on climate change and India.
India's growing economy makes it a key contributor to greenhouse gas emissions — currently the world's fifth largest. But what does India’s future emissions profile look like? Should the country be pressurised to curb its emissions? And how can it adapt to the consequences of global climate change?
SciDev.Net's spotlight examines these issues through facts and figures, features and opinion pieces from international journalists and key stakeholders.
This new resource completes a series of spotlights on climate change in Brazil, China and India, three of the largest greenhouse gas emitters in the developing world. The spotlights provide topical news, opinion, background reading and links to relevant organisations.
These spotlights feature as part of SciDev.Net's online resource for those interested in the relationship between climate change and development. It provides an informed guide to the issues at the heart of international debate, including the threat of sea-level rise, the use of carbon sinks, adaptation and vulnerability, and the accuracy of climate models.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
