Abstract

The Bali road map under UNFCCC highlighted the conclusions of IPCC on climate change across the World. It indicates that the global warming is real. The Polar ice is melting and sea level will increase. One-third of our plant and animal species are likely to vanish. There will be famine around the world, particularly in Africa and central Asia. The Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) in developing countries is on top priority as deforestation alone may cause 20 to 25% increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. The second major issue is on “Adaptation Fund” designed to help developing countries dealing with impact of climate change. Therefore, it is pertinent to follow the guidelines at the regional scale so as to mitigate the ill effects of climate change on war-footing.
