    Climate change is no unidirectional issue, it brings along with its effects on both the resources and resource users, thus the adaptation to it should ensure that the multifarious impacts it brings along can be tackled. Development can not be ceased, nor can exploitation be hailed, the key to successful climate change adaptation is implementing sustainable development through incentive based polices and empowering the economically weaker sections of the society with environmentally friendly livelihoods. This could be achieved through ’blue economy’ which is a recently developed business model which will shift society from scarcity to abundance “with what is locally available”, by tackling issues that cause environmental and related problems in new ways. Blue economy could enhance the ocean technologies, provide marine governance, helps to improve ocean health and manage coastal urbanization. It is the marine based economic development which improves the human well -being and also social equity which in general greatly decreases the environmental risks and ecological scarcities.
