Fact File

The Interdisciplinary Programme (IDP) in Climate Studies was initiated at the Indian Institute of

Technology Bombay, in January, 2012, as one of the first doctoral programmes in India addressing
research related to climate change.

Over 24 faculty participants are drawn from 12 departments across IIT Bombay, who increasingly
apply a depth of expertise in their fields to address the complexity of climate change.

Expertise in climate science, adaptation, mitigation and policy.

Curriculum with courses in science and policy tracks.

Currently, 36 students are enrolled for the doctoral programme.
