Abstract

Globally, climate change has become one of the predominant public health concerns of the 21st century. There are diverse perspectives on climate change and the challenges it poses to society. Despite evident controversies the consequences of rising heat levels, steady and persistent variability in temperatures, alterations in the pattern of rainfall, continued environmental degradation, and an increase in the frequency and coverage of droughts and floods are evident (1).Forecasts for Ethiopia indicate that the amount of annual rainfall and number of rainy days will decrease in some parts of the country by 2080 (2).
