St. Xavier's Global Earth Summit-IV

International Conference on "Global Climate Change and Water Disasters"

March 27 - 29, 2015
Dept. of Environmental Studies, St. Xavier's College, Kolkata.

Water is synonymous with Life. It nurtures parched throats and barren lands, helping all God's creatures to not only thrive, but also to live. It cleanses the unclean, absolves sins and leads one to salvation. Yet, when man descends into the dark recesses of doom, in its extremes,the benevolent life force inundates either with vengeance bordering on the colossal - tsunamis, hurricanes, floods; or with stoic temperance - leading to drought, deficiency and famine.
