Impact of Climate Change on Arid Region: Case Study of Rajasthan
International Journal of Environment and Climate Change,
The climate is changing at a very quick rate adding to the expanded global concern. During the most recent couple of years, the noble Coronavirus held the world by a threat that caused huge financial mishaps and loss of lives. Simultaneously, the extreme weather events kept on adding to the outrageous climate crisis. To mitigate the effect of climate change, the entire world met up and made various commitments made in various UN conventions, culminating in the Paris Convention to both implement mitigation and adaptation measures to reduce the emissions. The Sustainable Development Goals plan was recognized by all individuals from the United Nations in 2012 at Rio De Janeiro with an expect to propel a sound and created future for the planet and its people. It was in 2015 the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were embraced with 17 goals; with SDGs Goal No.13 addressing earnest activities to combat climate change and its impact in all topographical elements including arid areas. The paper is an attempt to give an overview of the Arid region, climate vulnerability, and to identify the main challenges which climate change presents to the region's future development. The paper further explores the impact of climate change in an arid area and the variation and alleviation ways to deal with address the worries of climate change and closes with methods of freeing the impact from climate change in a parched Rajasthan.
