Climate change has become a burning issue in the present century by changing the properties of atmosphere like rainfall, humidity, temperature etc. Green House Gases are having a major share in the climate change, Co2 being an important culprit in the scenario. Due to the increased Co2 concentration, there is an increase in atmospheric temperature, leading to Global Warming. Climate change is nowadays a trending issue in all sectors of agriculture. Researches have been done showing the influence of climate change on host-patho system. Some of the studies also showed the change in disease management strategies due to climate change. Climate change has also led to some of the severe epidemics in all over the world. It has not only increased the biotic stresses of plants, but also increased the cost of their management. Climate change has both positive and negative effect on crop diseases. One of the basic limitations in the study of climate change with respect to crop disease is that most of the studies are not able to answer the root mechanism behind the effects of climate change on crop diseases. So, it is a need of an hour to integrate all the mitigating strategies to tackle this global problem.

Keywords: Climate, Green House Gases, Global warming, Carbon dioxide
