Global Warming is perhaps the biggest challenge that the humankind is facing presently. Man has the onus of protecting not only himself but also other life forms on this planet. Globally, all nations are working on their strategies to combat climate change. On the national front, the Prime Minister’s National Action Plan for Climate Change comprises Eight National Missions designed to achieve sustainable development as a co-benefit of addressing climate change. Indian economy is mainly dependent on land-based sectors, which are going to be severely affected by the impacts of climate change. National strategy, sub national approaches and action plans have to be developed and implemented soon. The Uttarakhand Action Plan for Climate Change (UAPCC) is an outcome of this. The task of preparation of this plan was assigned to the State Forest Department.
