Abstract

Climate change is a complex, long-term crisis about two centuries in the making. It has come to be recognised as one of the most critical challenges ever to the humankind. The world has now recognized that climate change is no longer solely an environmental problem. Rather, it has become an economic, trade and security issue that will increasingly dominate global and national policies as its impacts become more apparent. There are few human activities that do not contribute to it and as such, the scale of response needed is so large and widespread.
