Great to see Orissa taking the lead in this crucial area of climate change. As a matter of fact there was an adjournment motion in the Orissa Assembly way back in 2002 when the lawmakers wanted to know the efforts made by the government to tackle climate change, because the impacts of a super cyclone, droughts and floods were devastating Orissa. Some rudimentary steps were taken right then to rope in all the departments concerned in this massive effort to mitigate the evils of climate change. Good to see that this time it is more focussed and comprehensive involving all stakeholders. God Bless their endeavour and may all the states and countries start taking such efforts.
