India is one the few countries which have built and launched satellites specifically for Ocean applications. India's coastline supports more than 30% of its population. The Council will be responsible for undertaking periodic reviews and reporting on the missions' progress. The missions are wide ranging, targeting energy efficiency and renewable energy, as well as improved research capacity on climate change issues.
This was slashed to Rs 15,000 crore in the 12th Plan 2012-2017. This knowledge is crucial for planning adaptation and mitigation strategies at the regional or local level. The weakest part of campaign for going solar is the generation from rooftop sources. In India it claimed an estimated more than 10,000 lives. We are, in fact, climate victims.
There has also been an effort to adopt the co-benefit approach—promoting development object- ives while yielding additional benefits for climate change. Since 2011, a total of 850 publications have come out of these missions. National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture: The plan aims to support climate adaptation in agriculture through the development of climate-resilient crops, expansion of weather insurance mechanisms, and agricultural practices. The Action Plan was released on 30th June 2008 to address the future policies and programs for the climate mitigation and adaptation. Partnership approach to take research output to last mile.
Down To Earth is a product of our commitment to make changes in the way we manage our environment, protect health and secure livelihoods and economic security for all. The state government is of the opinion that health is one of the major climate change impacts and hence has included it as an additional mission. Between now and 2015, India will provide technical assistance to other countries and share its experience, and will support the creation of a platform for global knowledge management to oversee the dissemination of best practices. The development of coastal community is a critical area in India as 18% of Indias population lives in 73 coastal districts. Climate change impacts will range from affecting agriculture — further endangering food security — to sea-level rise and the accelerated erosion of coastal zones, increasing intensity of natural disasters, species extinction, and the spread of vector-borne diseases. Fishing is a major economic activity and India is the third largest producer of fish and second largest producer of inland fish.
It assumes significance because plastic debris has an impact on oceans, wildlife, and, potentially, humans through the food chain. The national action plan on climate change identifies measures that promote India's development objectives while also yielding co-benefits for addressing climate change effectively. The mission has also lagged in providing alternative fuel technology to households to reduce emissions from burning of fuelwood and other similar fuels. We are currently in the process of compiling this document which will help us gain insights and be better prepared during all negotiations on climate change, including being able to counter particular Western narratives regarding contributions of developing countries like India. On the other hand, there are many examples where the community driven processes have shown that through local water systems, it is possible to achieve equitable, sustainable and pro poor development, but such systems have no worthwhile place in the plan. .
Similarly, despite its long coast line, only 0. These have remained woefully neglected and nearly nothing has moved on the ground. Climate change is not population control, not poverty, not rural unemployment. People have started migrating from places where water has become scarce. National Mission for Sustaining the Himalayan Ecosystem: The plan aims to conserve biodiversity, forest cover, and other ecological values in the Himalayan region. Many cases of marine bio-invasion have been reported and their harmful effects on the ecosystem and human health have been documented.
Though baseline studies have been conducted in only six states so far we are confident that an expansion is imminent and several workshops are being conducted to facilitate the same. The electronic National Agricultural Marketing platform now covers 250 Mandis agricultural markets across the country. Coastal fisheries are linked to economic and environmental health. Other objectives include the establishment of a solar research center, increased international collaboration on technology development, strengthening of domestic manufacturing capacity, and increased government funding and international support. During 2012-2015, the Union budgets altogether alloca ted a paltry Rs 350 crore to the mission. On the other, it places ever-rising revenues in the hands of the Government to finance social spending.
