This chapter explains the type of information needed to measure climate change and inconsistency as well as the techniques used for measuring the effects and susceptibility of global climate of various sectors. This chapter is aimed to know the regional and international potential impacts at average elevated temperature up to 5 °C, over 7 indicators that represent temperature, water, agriculture, food security, extreme events, healthcare, coastal zones, and ecosystem. For example, the surface temperature over the last decade had grown about “0.6 °C,” which is consistent with increasing global average temperature. Water travels constantly above, on, and below the surface of the planet, interchanging through air, liquid water, and vapor. The growth of agriculture is highly vulnerable to 2 °C (drop) global average temperatures projections with significant impact on both rural and urban agricultural development and food stability. An increase in the severity and the incidents of severe weather is among the most important noticeable effects of global warming; huge flood in different parts of the world affect billions of population and the incidence of Malaria and other infectious disease were enormously reported after the onset of flood. The climatological patterns (rapid change in daytime temperature, mostly in cool climatic season) induce respiration problems characterized as upper and lower respiratory infection. Furthermore, coastal habitats are among the most productive habitats as they are supplemented by land-based and marine minerals but these are much disturbed by climate change. So, an integrated approach is needed to use the elements of nature for getting maximum benefits on a sustained basis.
