Abstract:

The faster rate of changing pattern of climate will lead to significant challenges for society in the coming future. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a projection report which predicts temperature rises of up to 4.5°C or higher by 2080, and again which depends on anthropogenic changes and other factors. The Global assessment report on disaster risk reduction (GAR) 2019 had presented a layout which focused on major risk to human life from air pollution and biological hazards, in addition to other natural disasters like floods, landslides and earthquakes. There is a need to consider climate change as forthcoming disaster and to take necessary steps to reckon with the situation. Adaptation is an alteration in behaviour to become better fitted to survive the changing environment. Social capital is a valuable mechanism in adaptation to climate change. It acts as vehicle to reach the adaptation strategies to climate change. A comprehensive study was conducted at Bhagalpur and Banka district of Bihar to assess the role played by social capital to cope the weather extremities. The result revealed that the information received by the farmers from their fellow farmers was perceived as more trustworthy than any other sources of information. It was also found that proximity of institutions make them available to the needy at shortest possible time.
