ABSTRACT

Based on the most recent data, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change maintains that climate change is an inevitable development. Current observations prove that many natural systems around the globe are already being affected by climate change (Schneider et al. 2007). Even if we were able to curb our emissions today, the climate will change owing to the accumulation of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted in the past. Thus, even from a sceptical point of view, it is now widely recognised that we must begin to initiate adaptation measures now.
