Creating Climate Change Related Resources and Tools for Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR)
This project was envisaged to create Climate Change (CC) related ‘Communication Resources and Tools’ (CCRT). CCRT was considered as a vehicle to communicate CC to diverse stakeholders, specific to the context of MMR. The tools comprised of carbon footprint calculators, resource book for youth to make careers in CC, Children’s activity booklet for school teachers, communication tools like posters, presentations, factsheets, etc. In developing these tools, a needs assessment was carried out through stakeholder consultations and the tools were exhibited in public through an exhibition. The CCRT website was well publicised by the media and sessions were conducted with 42 school Principles so that the tools could be used by the schoolteachers to increase understanding of students on CC.
The Climate Change Communication Toolkit is available in English and in Marathi for free download on the Mumbai Metropolitan Region – Environment Improvement Society (MMR-EIS) website at http://mmreis.org.in/mmr-ccrt/index.php?lang=en
