People around the world have already started to face the devastating consequences of climate change. Shift in weather pattern, drought in some parts and unexpected torrential rainfall in the other parts, heat waves, melting of snow in a fast rate, rising sea level etc. are evident and these have threatened people’s life, hardened livelihood, damaged infrastructures, and destroy the balanced natural system.
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group I Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC WGI AR5) clearly indicates that it is extremely likely that the anthropogenic activities are the dominant cause of the global warming since the mid-20th century. The Paris Agreement on climate change is an important achievement in global climate negotiations whose overarching goal is to limit the global average temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius. It is a tough and challenging ambition which require profound changes in the energy system that the world is adopting today. The objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. Technological advancement, innovative approaches and combine efforts by people and governments assists on overcoming the global challenges caused by climate changes. Impacts and risks related to climate change can be reduced and managed through adaptation and mitigation (IPCC WGII AR5). Engagement and / or commitment of policymakers, businesses, civil society, development agencies locally, nationally and globally are crucial to achieve the climate change mitigation and adaptation, and to create resilient societies.
