While on International fora the Government around the world are negotiating on various policy frameworks to limit greenhouse gases emission, on the other side the economies around the world along with people's livelihood are becoming highly vulnerable to climate change which is threatening existing inequities further.

Need not to mention here that those with the least stand to suffer the most. For reaching on consensus to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on reducing emissions, Conference of the Parties (COP 21) and Kyoto Protocol (CMP 11) will be held in Paris, France from 30 November to 11 December 2015.

In addition to the macro policy framework, the fact remains that there is a pressing need to enhance mitigation initiatives and adaptation responses to address issues in protecting vulnerable from climate change. This calls for a convergence among public and private development agencies who have long been tackling the issue of vulnerability reduction through their respective activities such as disaster risk reduction, mitigation of climate change, environmental management and poverty elevation.
