New Delhi, Nov 14: The Indian Network for Climate Change Assessment (INCCA) will release its first assessment report on climate change on Tuesday, Nov 16.

The report will reveal the impact of climate change on agriculture, health, water and forests in four regions, Himalayas, the Western Ghats, the coastal zone and the northeast of the country.
