CCRD has started on a strong footing, based on a five-year cooperation agreement with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) of Germany, which has given the nascent Centre a privileged position to work with one of the top climate institutions in the world. As we move forward, the guidance and support of PIK—in terms of strategic advice, research, teaching and funding opportunities will be critical in building the capacity of CCRD in terms of strategic advice, research teaching and funding opportunities.
Similarly, CCRD’s cooperative link with the International Centre for Climate & Environment Sciences (ICCES) and the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) of China is important. Both of these renowned institutions will work with CCRD to promote cooperative research and academic activities, including providing master’s and doctoral programs to CIIT students in climate-related studies

CCRD has established partnership with the prestigious Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) of Germany. The agreement will promote interest in research activities between two respective institutions, facilitate exchange of scientists and support the progress of the CCRD. The cooperation will include exchange of students, doctoral candidates or post-doctoral assistants, holding of jointly organized symposia, conferences and meetings on research issues and setting up of joint research projects at the Asian and global levels.
