New Delhi(PTI): India will on Tuesday release its first assessment report on the impact of climate change on four sectors, including agriculture and water, in the country’s four climatic hot spots like the Himalayas and the North East.
“The first 4×4 assessment report will be released on November 16. Prepared by Indian Network of Climate Change Assessment, it will assess the impact of climate change on four sectors of the economy – agriculture, water, health and forests — in the four regions of the country,” Ramesh said at a function here.
The four climatic regions are the Himalayas, Coastal India, the Western Ghats and the North East.
He said North-East region is most important as it has the country’s 25 per cent of forest cover and will be most severely affected due to climate change.
