Climate change: Causes behind rainfall

According to a recent analysis of NAPCC, the north eastern region witnessed changing rainfall patterns due to climate change.

The National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) was launched by the Prime Minister-Climate Change Committee in the year 2008. It identifies solutions that contribute to India’s development objectives while effectively tackling climate change.

Factors causing change in Rainwater pattern:

Moisture/humidity and drought both together:

  • Global warming
  • Pacific Decadal Oscillation (POD)
  • Sun dimming period

In the view of continuous heavy rains, today a red alert has been declared in eastern Uttar Pradesh and an orange alert in western Uttar Pradesh including Uttarakhand, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

Due to this, in most of the northern region, the risk of dengue and viral diseases is increasing. People are urged to stop stagnation of water in and around their homes, so that they can get relief from mosquito-borne diseases.
