About the Book

India as a developing country, and part of Millennium Development Goals, is confronting with the challenge of sustaining its rapid economic progress and at the same time dealing with the global risk of climate change. The country, whose economy is directly coupled with its natural resources and climate susceptible sectors such as agriculture, water resources, forestry, mining industry, Coastal development, and others, India may face a major threat because of the projected changes in climate.

    The “Climate Change” is a documented fact and Govt. of India has launched its national action plan on climate change (NAPCC), with initiatives that include creation of 8 core “national missions” representing multi-pronged, long-term and integrated strategies for achieving key goals in the context of climate change.

    Over the next several years there will be a major requirement for professionals from a variety of basic disciplines, who can understand climate change, who can develop techno-scientific methods and models to cope up with climate change.
