Climate change and its smart management

Author(s):

Abstract:
Climate change is now becoming one of the most complex environmental and socio- economic issues impacting on the livelihood of all over the world. It is harmful to every country on every continent. (UNSDG/2020) It is affecting national economies and affecting lives. People are experiencing the many impacts of global climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising water level, and more extreme weather events. Climate change is more than global warming. The rise in average temperature is merely one indicator of broader changes also translating into extreme temperatures, drought, flooding, storms, rising sea levels, impacts on food production, and infectious diseases. Although the scientific community has been conscious of the link between greenhouse gases (GHGs) and global climate change for several years, world leaders are slow to react and implement measures to mitigate the risks. Key sources of data on global climate change are synthesized by the successive reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on global climate change (IPCC) created by the United Nations and therefore the World Meteorological Organization in 1988. In recent time global climate change and its impact on human health and awareness constitute a gaggle of complex and high consequences to be tackled by a personal country. Climate change isn't merely an environmental issue, but also it's a threat that goes beyond national borders. India is both a big greenhouse emission emitter and one among the foremost vulnerable countries within the earth to projected global climate change. The country is already experiencing changes in climate and therefore the impacts of global climate change, including water stress, heat waves and drought, severe storms and flooding, and associated negative consequences on health and livelihoods. With a 1.2 billion but growing population and dependence on agriculture, India probably are becoming to be severely impacted by continuing global climate change. (NIC/2009) Global observations of melting glaciers suggest that global climate change is well under way within the region, with glaciers receding at a mean rate of 10–15 meters per annum. If the speed increases, flooding is probably going in river valleys fed by these glaciers, followed by diminished flows, leading to water scarcity for drinking and irrigation.
