Environmental Challenges due to Climate Change in Bihar

 

Bihar faces the great environmental challenges due to climate change. It has wide-ranging effects on the environment, and on socioeconomic sectors, including water resources, agriculture and food security, human health, ecosystems and biodiversity.

 

 

 

Climate change refers to any significant change in measures of climate such as temperature, Precipitation, or wind lasting for an extended period (decades or longer). Climate change may result from: natural factors, as changes in the sun's intensity or slow changes in the Earth's orbit around the sun; natural processes within the climate system (e.g. changes in ocean circulation); human activities that change the atmosphere's composition (e.g. through burning fossil fuels) and the land surface (e.g. deforestation, reforestation, urbanization, desertification, etc.)

Climatically, the state of Bihar lies on the crossroads of the wet eastern coastal regions and the relatively dry continental region of the western plains. It caused regional variations in rainfall distribution as well as rainfall variability.  It makes state vulnerable to drought and floods both. Quite often the problem of drought and floods prevails simultaneously.

 

 

There is need of state level climate model and high level community awareness to climate change adaptation.
