Climate atlas of India: district-level analysis of historical and projected climate change scenarios

This report summarises the findings of the assessment for all 28 states of India. The timescale for the analysis is the near or short-term period of the 2030s (2021–2050), and it has been compared with the climate of the near past historical period (1990–2019) at a district level. Climate change projections are done for two Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) or climate scenarios, namely RCP 4.5 (moderate emissions scenario) and RCP 8.5 (high emissions scenario). Historical climate data and gridded data for climate change projections are from the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
