The coastal region is the interface between the sea and the land, a space that is constantly changing in time and space. On the Indian mainland, there are nine maritime states (West Bengal, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and two union territories, (Daman & Diu, Puducherry) with a coastline of more than 6,000 km. These regions are densely populated and about a quarter of the population lives within fifty kilometers of the coastline because of reasons like fertile soil, opportunity for the development of fishing and shipping industry and so on. Besides, coastal areas harbour a variety of ecosystems such as mangroves, coral reefs, Sea-grass beds, mudflats and sandy shores, where a variety of floral and faunal species abound and play an important role in the socio-economic development of India..
Increasing scientific evidence confirms anthropogenic activities lead to changes in global climate system which includes warmer temperatures, rising sea levels, and potentially more frequent and severe extreme weather events such as tropical storms, monsoonal heavy rainfall, flood, drought, tsunamis, earthquake etc. These pose significant risks to public safety and natural resources of coastal region. Thus, there is an urgent need to reduce the vulnerability of coastal infrastructure and land uses by linking weather, climate and climate change issues to national development strategies.
Considering the above aspects, TROPMET 2016, focuses on Climate Change and Coastal Vulnerability as theme of IMS Annual National Symposium. It offers a unique opportunity to network with planners, researchers, educationists, extension personnel and different levels of stakeholders to share their experiences and expertise to reduce the impacts of climate variability and natural disasters and to make recommendations on adaptation and mitigation for sustainable development.
