Climate Change in India

The Government of India and the Indian Network for Climate Change Assessment have released an up-to-date report on observed and projected climate change for India, which also includes assessments of climate change impacts to four sectors in four regions. The four sectors include agriculture, water, human health, and forests while the four sectors span the Himalayan region, the Western Ghats, the Northeast, and the coast. While the report frequently notes the importance of, and potential for, adaptation in reducing the adverse consequences of climate change, it says little about specific adaptation policies and measures and their associated costs and benefits. Hence, it's unclear how this thorough assessment of the potential consequences of climate change will be translated into actions to avoid those consequences. Perhaps that is a task for a future report. . .
