Case Study 1
Climate Change and its Impact in India
India has managed to emerge as a front-runner against climatic changes at the global level. The Indian subcontinent has managed to displace coal as a source of energy with solar power. India has been making extensive efforts to save the planet from the effects of climatic changes. Climatic conditions of India are changing rapidly and the temperature is becoming warmer day after day. Immediate effects of climatic changes can be seen on coastal line, food security and on the health of people living in the country. Urbanisation and industrialisation have added significantly towards the climatic changes in the country (The World bank, 2017). These climatic changes have been interfering with the economic growth of the country as well. The impacts of climate changes have been identified as:
· Destruction of environment and depletion of natural resources
· The region is becoming more prone to natural disasters such as floods or droughts.
· Adverse impacts range from hunger, vulnerability to diseases, loss of income and livelihoods.
· Frequency of extreme weather events such as long spells of rainfalls of heat waves is increasing day by day.
Key Causes of Climate Change in India
    Key causes of climate change in India have been identified as:
· Urbanisation: Managing urban growth has become one of the most important challenges for India in the 21st century. Impositions of structures and building have altered the natural environment and therefore have been contributing significantly towards the climatic changes. With increasing urban population, the issue of pollution has been rising exponentially. The harmful gases emitted from vehicles and air conditioners have been interfering with the natural environment leading to global warming and the greenhouse effect. Forest and agricultural lands are vanishing
· Industrialisation: As India moved forward on the path of growth in order to boost its economy, more and more industries have been set up, which required clearing hectares of forestland. This not increased the temperature of the region but also interfered with the ecological balance. Moreover, the waste material being released from these industries has been spoiling the quality of air and water leading to a variety of climatic conditions in a number of regions. Extensive release of CO2 and other heat trapping gasses into the atmosphere have increased the greenhouse effect and have caused the temperature of the Earth to rise.
Consequences of Climate Change in India
    Climatic changes have been a matter of concern for the masses in India living in the 21st century. Consequences of climatic changes have been identified as:
· Climate changes in India have been causing serious health disorders and have been identified as one of the primary causes of malnutrition in the country.
· Several places in India have been facing extreme weather conditions such as floods, droughts and cyclones due to these climatic changes that interfere significantly with the lifestyle of the people living in the region.
· The temperature of the region has been increasing day by day and the rainfall patterns have disturbed considerably leading to scarcity of drinkable water.
· Climatic changes have been adversely affecting the crop and food production in the region and not only lead to scarcity of food but have also forced a number of farmers to commit suicides.
· The natural disasters caused because of climate change have been a major reason of hunger and increased vulnerability of the people to a number of diseases.
· Warmer climatic conditions have also slowed down the poverty reduction rate.
India as a Front Runner against Climatic Changes
    There is no doubt about the fact that India has emerged as a front-runner in a fight against climatic changes (Times of India, 2017). India has been putting in many dedicated efforts to control the climatic changes and the adverse impact they may have. To do so the Indian subcontinent has taken the following effective measures:
· Indian has managed to displace coal as a source of energy with solar power.
· India has been investing considerably into energy projects that focus on the renewable sources of energy.
· About 1/6 of India's Electricity Comes from renewable energy resources
· India has been focusing on the use of clean energy to support its economical and societal growth.
· The Government of India...
