Socio Economic Impacts and Community Response

It is important to understand the impacts of climate change on the household level and the response of the community particularly in the backward regions, coastal and hill and mountain eco systems. In a study carried out by USNPSS, Almora, the major climatic hazards in the north-west Himalayas in Uttarakhand were analysed which indicated that horticulture based activities were more vulnerable in the hills. The farmers generally perceive that in recent years, temperature has risen significantly and rainfall has declined as well as became erratic with an increase in high intensity events. There was a significant difference in the impact and the response of the farmers based on the altitude. Interestingly, farmers perceived that altitude has an impact on the climatic hazards in the hill region.
