State action plan for climate change for the state of Goa from 2023 to 2033

Change in mean temperature anomaly in Goa compared to the period 1960-1990 reiterates the conclusion that the mean temperature anomaly in Goa has increased by 1°C in the last century, as per the ‘State Action Plan for Climate Change for The State Of Goa from 2023 to 2033’ report. Goa also has large tracts of hilly areas nestled in the Western Ghats, which receives a lot of rains, but due to lack of enough check dams and poor rain water harvesting strategy, the water runs off and goes waste. Added to this is rapid urbanisation of Goa, especially in the coastal regions.
