Role of polar regions in global climate change : education and outreach
  • Educators, Teachers
In developing countries where most of world population resides and climate change effects will be in the form of change in rain fall pattern, floods, droughts, melting of glaciers, sea level rise etc. Ultimately agriculture and water supplies will be affected to large extent thereby affecting food production. To deal such challenges large number of professionals/educators/teachers are required for the proper planning, providing solutions, handling adverse situations. It has now become a global responsibility to understand the climate change, on both short and long timescale as global phenomenon, in different parts of the world. Potential impacts on Indian subcontinent may be significant, especially in relation to extreme events. Therefore, spreading awareness and education among masses especially in developing countries like India needs great efforts. In this paper an attempt has been made to highlight these issues and to suggest educational activities for the classroom.
