Indian women have major responsibilities to mention healthy family by supplying good and timely water, food, energy and nutrients. All these daily women activities are directly associated with the nature and affected by the climate change that leads to drought, uncertain rainfall, increased temperatures, fires and health disorders. Even though 43 per cent of rural workers are women but among them only 5 per cent of women have access to extension services directly rest are depending on husbands, neighbours, friends and relatives.In this situation it is most required for the staffing of agricultural extension services with women extension officers who could reach farm women directly. To educate the farm women towards climate change issues women extension workers should have proper knowledge towards climate change.  To know the knowledge of women research scholars a special interview schedule was designed with 200 multiple choice questions related with various aspects of climate change with the help of major guide and all other scientists of agriculture and allied fields. It is observed that an average women research scholars having 41 to 60 per cent of knowledge across the four different concepts of climate change issues.  To increase the knowledge of women research scholars  towards climate change SAUs should  guide the postgraduate woman research scholars to participate in the seminars, workshops or training programs by utilize the internet services available in the university campuses for the developing of positive attitude towards climate smart technologies that leads to increase the knowledge of the women research scholars towards climate change issues than they can train the farm women to mitigate the climate change problems.
