Dr. Monika, Dr. Rajesh Hooda
Climate change is a serious issue throughout the world but India being a developing country has to bear more adverse effects which in turn affect its goal of development. Adaptation and mitigation are two important strategies in combating the problem of climate change. Adaptation is short term effective while mitigation for long term. In era of development with mitigative strategies adaptive measures become important. India is adopting both of these strategies but climate change being a complex and technical issue therefore selection of the strategy should be best suited to situation. India has formulated various schemes, policies and action plans working in this direction. The National Action Plan focuses attention on 8 priority National Missions.
