Kerala state action plan on climate change: draft

Government of Kerala has been working on a strategy for action in the state in response to Climate Change. It is proposed to identify specific vulnerabilities and plan appropriate responses keeping those in focus. As the foremost impact of the changing climatic pattern relates to the land and water resources, a system for monitoring it will be the first imperative. Further, the information at global as well as local level would be needed to be analysed for any strategy. This will essentially include assessment of efficacy of the present development strategies in this context and probable mid course corrections wherever found necessary. The principles adopted for the National Action Plan for Climate Change include achieving sustainable development path while advancing economic and environmental objectives.
