The Alliance of Mexican Indian Geoscientific Opportunities (AMIGOs) is an academic initiative by the geoscientists and researchers from Mexico and India. It provides a common platform for sharing their expertise in different themes related to earth sciences and take this bilateral collaboration forward to uncover scientific ways to understand the effects of anthropogenic climate change as well as to mitigate them. AMIGOs is organizing its first bilateral workshop with focus on water, climate change and disasters in the main campus of Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico, QS Global Ranking # 113) located at Mexico City (Mexico) with the participation of experts from different institutes (Institute of Geology, Institute of Geophysics, Institute of Geography, and Centre for atmospheric Science) and faculties (Faculty of Engineering, IRD in Mexico) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico as well as the scientists and faculties with similar and complementary research expertise from the Anna University, Bharathidasan University, Pondicherry University, French Institute of Pondicherry and Sri Shakthi Institute of Engineering and Technology of India. During the workshop, there will be plenaries by experts in the areas of global warming and extreme events, disasters associated with climate change, modelling and exploration of ground water, hydro-geochemical processes, and paleoclimatology using different scientific tools related to meteorology, geology, geophysics, geography, geochemistry as well as spatial observations and field data for the undergraduate and postgraduate students and early career research scientists.
