Trivandrum:Tackling climate change, disaster management are among the issues set to be discussed at an international conference to be held here in February next year.

Nearly 500 scientists and policy makers, including 200 from abroad, would attend the three-day conference being hosted by Kerala State Council for Science Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) from February 26.
The event is being held in association with International Academy of Astronautics and the International Institute of Space Law, KSCSTE Executive Vice-President V N Rajasekharan Pillai and former chairman of ISRO G Madhavan Nair told reporters here on Wednesday.
The conference proposes to address issues related to sharing of knowledge and data between countries with advanced resources and the emerging countries, Nair said.
Though India had a strong mechanism for disaster management using space technology in predicting natural calamities like cyclone, more studies were required for landslide and earthquake, he said.
"One of the objectives of the conference is to help narrow the knowledge and resource gap between developed and developing nations," he added.
