According to their level of causes of climate change, during pre-intervention 100 per cent of the respondents had attained low level of awareness regarding causes of climate change whereas after post-intervention 98 per cent of the respondents had attained high level on causes of climate change. Similarly, during pre-intervention respondents were attained low level of awareness regarding adaptation practices to climate change whereas after post-intervention respondents were attained high level of awareness regarding adaptation practices to climate change. The post-intervention results shows that majority of the respondents were gained in knowledge on adaptation strategies to cope up with climate change. The finding shows that training programmes were organized on different aspects of climate change as intervention programme.
