Today, human race faces many threats but none is greater than the climate challenge. I quote Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of UN, “ climate change does not respect borders; it does not respect who you are-rich and, the poor, small and big. Therefore, this is what we call ‘ global challenges’ which require global solidarity”-co-operation and collaboration among all people and all governments of the world. Our globe, is a world of looming climate challenges. Climate change is happening here and happening now. Hence, human beings should not become architects of their own destruction. With the available knowledge and tools, it is essential to reduce global warming in terms of the mitigation and adaptation strategies. Therefore, this paper delineates various climate change coping strategies followed all over the world with a detailed description of measures formulated and adopted in India.
