    Objective:

    India’s vulnerability to climate change impacts is profound since around 650 million Indians are dependent on rain-fed agriculture for their livelihoods; around 250 million Indians live along a 7500 km of coastline that is at high risk due to sea level rise and extreme weather events. Maximum number of business are situated near coastal areas and near river /other water bodies, many of the 10,000-odd Indian glaciers are receding at a rapid rate; and deforestation is happening (Garg et. al., 2015)
