Economy of the State:

Vulnerability to climate change will mainly depend on economic position and infrastructure capacity of nations. Climate change effects will impose significant additional stress on ecological and socio-economic systems, but currently these systems are burdened by pollution, natural resource scarcities and other unsustainable practices. Technologically advanced countries are prepared well for responding to climate change, particularly by developing and establishing suitable policy, institutional and social capability for dealing with the consequences. But the poor and developing countries are mostly affected by climate change, because they are not having enough and sound technologies or scientific development to deal with this impact. In developing countries like India, climate change is an additional burden because ecological and soioeconomic systems are already facing pressures from rapid population, industrialization and economic development. The mountain ecosystem are the most vulnerable to the economic impacts of climate change.The increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events can have serious economic consequences. The impact of climate change on agriculture and the fragile ecosystems in the mountains will have a direct impact on agricultural productivity and tourism, and consequently on the state’s economy.
