Climate change refers to a phenomenon that is experienced by the humans since its origin. It has become a serious threat to the indigenous people of the country as a whole.  In addition, the climate change impacts will be getting unavoidably worse, causing massive disruption and loss to human life and other species that support our ecosystems invisibly. Climate change has a direct impact on productivity of the agricultural sector, and affects the livelihoods of the small, marginal and rain fed farmers, as well as the agricultural laborers, women, forest dwellers, and other disadvantaged and marginalized communities. Children are adversely impacted in all accounts of their life by climate change. The study tries to identify the concerns of mining and industrialization in the district of Kendujhar and suggested a list of possible measures. Odisha has always been the most vulnerable state that gets impacted by the harsh climatic changes. The state is a periodic recipient of climate risks, such as flood, cyclones and drought. The agricultural system is monsoon dependent. Health, economy and education are the other sectors that are mostly affected by the climate change. Developing understanding on the existing coping mechanisms at the community level and then propagation of this understanding at a broader are the essential remedies.
