Global climate change and increasing climatic variability are recently considered a huge concern worldwide due to enormous emissions of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and its more apparent effect on fruit crops because of its perennial nature. The changed climatic parameters affect the crop physiology, biochemistry, floral biology, biotic stresses like disease-pest incidence, etc., and ultimately resulted to the reduction of yield and quality of fruit crops. So, it is big challenge to the scientists of the world. Mitigation is the most important measures to reduce the devastating effect of climate change. Carbon sequestration has the crucial role to mitigate the effect. Fruit crops are highly potential for carbon sequestration. Likewise negative impacts of climate change is also reduce through implementation of adaptation that are relevant, robust, and easily operated by all stakeholders, practitioners, policymakers and scientists.

Key words: Climate Change, Fruit Crops, Impact, Adaptation, Mitigation
