The National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) enacted by Government of India had considered climate change as a global challenge and is committed to engage multilaterally as per the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Numerous studies had pointed to Global climate change research using big data from Earth observations to enable the coordinated and sustainable development of humanity. NAPCC’s missions will involve huge number of agencies and resources at both at the national level and exchanges at the global level. Here an approach using Climate Data Cloud and Data Science processes is presented for NAPCC to benefit from. Besides, geographic reference system based interventions had been suggested for spatial access to climate data and climate intelligence based decision support for development planning, allocations and disaster mitigation.
