Technology has played a vital role in the transformation of society and culture, cutting across time and space.

With simple technology, earlier people were friendly towards the environment and with advanced technology, they became more aggressive towards the environment.

The degeneration of forests and excessive use of natural resources among other factors were responsible for the loss of ecological equilibrium and the dangerous consequences, were global warming and climate change.

It ranges from resource depletion to acid rain to carbon emission, all resulting in pollution, hazardous air-quality index, health hazards and so on.

The tribals in India are no exception to this phenomenon. Earlier they were small-scale producers and consumers, but now they have joined the mainstream. economy.

Thus all are facing the crises of higher rainfall, flood, drought, erosion, sedimentation etc.

The ongoing crisis in Uttarakhand, i.e., the Joshimath area developed cracks in the building and land, including road and other infrastructure because of human interventions.

The state has faced several floods which created havoc in the area, destroying human, animal and plant lives. These kinds of crises raise several issues which will be discussed at the Conference.
