Abstract

Climate change is accepted as a global reality beyond debate. It is expected to bring drastic changes in the natural cycles in the biosphere and human societies. Though the magnitude of the changes and their impacts in different parts of the globe are still discussed, the direction of changes is more or less understood as irreversible. While there is a high degree of uncertainty in the temporal and spatial manifestations of the impact of climate change, the rate of manifestation is perhaps getting quicker than expected. The inescapable calamities that climate change can bring are identified as major global threat to humanity. The world community has rightly started appreciating measures for remediation of climate change impacts as a mission towards world peace.
