Climate change (CC) is one of the most critical anthropogenic environmental impacts that has been experienced globally in recent decades. It can profoundly alter our economic future and livelihood. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has confirmed that the earth’s climate is getting warmer, with the likely increase in temperature ranging from 1.1 °Cto6.4 °C and the likely increase in sea level ranging from 0.18 m to 0.59 m (IPCC, 1995). CC will have dire consequences for developing countries, exacerbating poverty, disease and instability.
