Abstract: The buzz around climate change has gained significant momentum in the last decade, owing to the potentiality of its severe consequences. Sea levels are on the rise, the weather being increasingly unpredictable and extreme, a number of species facing extinction, and the level of pollution constantly on a rise. All of this is a direct result of global warming; the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is more than 400 ppm (NOAA’s Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network), and the carbon trading is said to worsen the scenario. The climate is therefore in a ‘constant turmoil’ due to environmental hazards- global warming, the depletion of the ozone layer and the continuation of man-made pollution. It is often recognized as a significant manmade global challenge. "Climate change is acting as a brake. We need yields to grow to meet growing demand, but already climate change is slowing those yields” states Michael Oppenheimer, a Princeton professor and author of the IPCC Assessment Report. The literature research done for this shows that the topics of sustainability and sustainable development have been largely addressed. Yet, there is a considerable lack of transparent information about the contribution to sustainable development of most CDM project activities.
