Climate change is a cross cutting issue and there is a rapid change due to the actions of humans. That is why the globe is facing many natural disasters such as cyclone, flood, severe droughts etc. What is not known is that the delay in responding to climate change will jeopardize the human life and livelihoods. In Home Economics curriculum there are courses like Environmental health and Appropriate technology which specifically discuss the topic related to climate change. The emphasis is on major environmental issues, special health problems that people encounter, human ecosystem, environmental education, energy conservation, forestry development and disposal of refuse. What is missing in the curriculum is models or coping strategies to adapt to climate challenges and therefore this missing issues has to be included in the curriculum.
